Veteran Students, Graduates, and Faculty Recognized for Service to Country

Nov 17, 2014

The Stark County Campus recently paid tribute to military service men and women during a Veterans Day celebration. Members of the Stark County Color Guard presented the colors in the lobby of the school and led the staff, faculty, and students in reciting the Pledge of Allegiance.

Veteran students Linette Pridgen, Ryann Pizzedaz, Ian Simmons, Karen Huff, and Ronald Beckley were on hand to join in the festivities. Also in attendance were American National University Stark County graduate Timothy Thompson and faculty member Richard Crislip, a veteran of the United States Air Force. All were recognized in a presentation about the importance of Veterans Day.

The campus also recognized relatives of staff members. Librarian Marianna Lijoi’s son, Kyle Antol, a U. S. Navy veteran was in attendance, and there were photos displayed of administrative assistant Su Marcoguiseppe’s two nephews, Colin and Christopher Hyatt, currently stationed in Okinawa, Japan and Oahu, Hawaii, respectively.

“It is important to be able to honor our veterans,” campus director Chris Capozzi said. “It needs to be more than just a one day thing, as we should show our gratitude daily to those who serve.”

Linette Pridgen, a U.S. Army Reserve veteran and pharmacy technician student, attended the Veterans Day recognition ceremony at the Stark County Campus.
