CASPER, Wyo. — Casper College Veterans’ Services will kick off Veterans Appreciation Week with a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new Veteran Resource Center on campus on Monday, Nov. 7.

The new Veteran Resource Center opened at the start of the fall semester.

“The new space has been a blessing for all of our military-affiliated students,” Dr. Nicholas Whipps, Veteran and Military Student Services Coordinator at Casper College, said in an announcement. “With the tight timeline to get everything ready over the summer, we did not have an opportunity to showcase this space to our campus and community before the semester started.

“We now want to officially invite you to join us in a ribbon-cutting ceremony and open house to kick off our annual Veterans Appreciation Week on campus. This will be an opportunity to not only come and see the new space but to get a little lunch as well.”

The ribbon-cutting ceremony will start at noon Monday, Nov. 7 at the new Veteran Resource Center in room 207 of the Gateway Building, 1910 Lisco Drive on the Casper College campus. While an open house will officially run from noon to 1 p.m. Nov. 7, people can stop in any time before 5 p.m., Whipps said.

If people plan to attend the ribbon-cutting ceremony, Whipps asked that they email him at nwhipps@caspercollege.edu so that arrangements can be made to provide enough food for everyone.

Veterans Appreciation Week will continue with a range of other events at Casper College:
