Nicolet College to Honor Veterans Leading Up to Veteran’s Day Nov. 11


Nicolet College is continuing its long-standing tradition of honoring those who have served in the military with several events and activities leading up to Veteran’s Day Friday, Nov. 11. 

“Nicolet College serves military-connected students, whether they are a veteran themselves, a spouse, or a dependent. Though we appreciate their sacrifices all throughout the year, Veteran’s Day is our chance to recognize and honor our student veterans and families as well as others within our Nicolet community,” said Casey Lehmann, Nicolet Financial Aid advisor and school certifying official for VA Education Benefits. 

Lehmann was in the Wisconsin Army National Guard, having joined in 1998. She served with the 724thEngineer Battalion in Iraq from 2003 to 2004.  

Activities this year will include a panel discussion with Northwoods veterans from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 11, in the Lakeside Center on the Nicolet campus.
