Kentucky National Guard members will now have streamlined access to educational support through Northern Kentucky University’s Veterans Resource Station.
The Kentucky National Guard and NKU will sign a Memorandum of Understanding to create a partnership allowing the university to work with citizen soldiers to fit their unique needs on the path to graduation.
“The Memorandum of Understanding signing between NKU and the KY National Guard is a historical event signifying our commitment to the uniqueness of them being a citizen soldier and college student,” said Veterans Resource Station Coordinator Rusty Mardis in a release. “The Memorandum of Understanding symbolizes NKU’s dedication to our KY National Guard students to aid them to be successful in college, career, and life.”
The partnership will be made official with a signing ceremony on Wednesday, Sept. 27, at 10 a.m. in the University Center Room 135.
Kentucky’s Adjutant General, Maj. Gen. Hal Lamberton will be joined by NKU Interim President Bonita Brown, who will sign the Memorandum of Understanding. Mardis will also attend with National Guard service members, military-connected, and veteran students. The community is also invited to witness the event.
