SWOSU Groups Honoring Veterans this Sunday with Special Lunch


Southwestern Oklahoma State University will again be honoring area veterans this year with a special free luncheon this Sunday, November 11, at the Pioneer Center in Weatherford. 

All veterans and their guests will be honored at the 12:30 p.m. luncheon.  Even though the event is free, reservations are still required by calling 580.774.3767.

The event is sponsored by the SWOSU Collegiate Activities Board and the Guard Officer Leadership Development (GOLD) program. Colonel Michael Thompson, who is Oklahoma’s Commissioner of the Department of Public Safety, will be guest speaker for the celebration, which is entitled “Leadership and Citizenship: Working Together for Those We Serve.”

Community members are also invited to purchase tickets for $10 each in the SWOSU Dean of Students Office in Room 214 of the Stafford Center.

Emily Hickey of CAB said the Pioneer Center (1000 Gartrell Place) doors will open at 11:45 a.m.
