Shawnee Community College (SCC) will once again host its annual event geared towards honoring local veterans.

This year's event is titled Learn and Earn and will feature several speakers outlining various education, medical and business-related benefits available to veterans.

The event is scheduled for Tuesday, Nov. 12 and begins with a time of networking and light breakfast at 8:30 a.m. on the main campus of Shawnee Community College in the atrium.

The program is being hosted as part of the ongoing efforts by SCC to provide information and connections to local veterans who may be underutilizing services currently available to them.

Attendees are encouraged to bring a spouse or caregiver to the event, and as a way of saying thank you to local veterans, the Veterans Resource Center will be offering a $65 Visa gift card to the first 40 veterans in attendance.

For more information regarding this event, contact Dr. Gregory Mason, SCC Dean of Workforce and Innovation, at 618-634-3325 or e-mail
