Dear Broncho Community,
Today, we pause to remember and honor those who have valiantly sacrificed in service to our country through the armed forces. The souls of these individuals are connected by courage, selflessness, duty, and pride. Our freedom has been won and defended through the extraordinary efforts of these citizens who have chosen to contribute to the greater good.
The University of Central Oklahoma is proud to support our military and be recognized for these efforts as a Top Ranked School that is Best for Vets. We develop military officers ready to lead through our ROTC program, and our VetHERO Office is dedicated to providing service and support designed to meet the unique needs of our active-duty and veteran students. We are blessed to be home to hundreds of students, faculty, and staff who have served our country in this way. Each of us enjoys freedoms provided by the service of these individuals, and I encourage you to honor our military heroes through personal expressions of gratitude.
As the state’s only metropolitan university, I believe it is essential to invite and embrace the presence of these engaged citizens and leaders in our campus community as they model the way for those among us who strive to do the same. We thank you for your service and proudly honor you today and always.
