On Veterans Day, Nov. 11, RIT hosted its inaugural Veterans Day Recognition and Celebration. The breakfast event paid tribute to members of the campus community who serve or have served honorably in uniform. RIT boasts a long history of accommodating the educational needs of returning veterans, dating back to the end of World War II. Event organizers say creating an annual on-campus event to accompany the national observance of Veterans Day is another way to acknowledge the service of all veterans affiliated with RIT. Keith Jenkins, associate professor in the Department of Communication, sings the national anthem as Barry Culhane, executive assistant to the president, salutes.
