Kaskaskia College President to be Named Veteran of the Month in Illinois

By Rob Sussman, WJBD News

Kaskaskia College President Dr. Jim Underwood will be named Illinois Veteran of the Month during an event on Friday at the College's Centralia Campus. An official with the Department will be on hand to present the award, which is in recognition of Dr. Underwood's military service and the many activities and programs initiated by the college to support area Veterans, including the Veterans Day Program and the construction of the Veterans Tribute Project, a monument currently under construction that currently lists the names of 25,000 American Veterans from every war in American history.

Dr. Underwood was nominated for the award by Earl White, a Veterans Service Officer with the Illinois Department of Veterans' Affairs in the Southern District. 

The event begins at 11:00am at the Lifelong Learning Center at Kaskaskia College in Centralia.
