The Center for Military Education (CME) will hold its first induction of Excelsior College military and veteran students who have met the academic standards to be a member of the SALUTE Veterans National Honor Society. SALUTE recognizes the service, academics, leadership, unity, tribute and excellence exhibited by these graduating students.
Graduating students were selected and extended a formal invitation to become SALUTE members. Being a member of SALUTE, graduating students will be presented with a SALUTE military challenge coin and membership certificate and a purple cord with a silver thread at an induction ceremony which will be conducted in their honor at the Desmond Hotel on Thursday, July 7 in the Fort Orange Room at 2:00 pm.
CME is expecting 26 SALUTE graduating students coming from as far away as Korea and as close as Albany and Troy. Please congratulate any students you see with the purple and silver cord for perseverance in their military endeavors and showing the same commitment to their academic pursuits.
