Salute to Veterans and Armed Services
Graduating Student-Veteran Stole Ceremony
The most recent stole ceremony was held on November 28th and recognized nearly 25 of the 90 student-veterans who graduated on December 10, 2016.
MTSU began to honor its graduating veterans with a formal Stole Ceremony starting with the first ceremony in May 2015. The student-veterans receive red stoles to wear during the university’s commencement ceremonies. “The Stole Ceremony demonstrates a clear commitment to recognize and appreciate the selfless service and sacrifice of our veterans and their precious families,” said Huber. “This stole ceremony will become a tradition symbolizing academic achievement and service.”
The next Stole Ceremony will be held in April to honor student-veterans graduating in spring 2017.
