Veterans Day Observance Receives Statewide Coverage
Spectrum News 1 highlights Tri-C virtual ceremony honoring employees, students who served
Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®) has long shared a special relationship with veterans and active members of the military.
The College serves as an important first step in the transition back to civilian life for many veterans, both in their academic studies and personal lives.
Tri-C also works to preserve military history with the Crile Archive Center for History Education, located at the Western Campus in Parma. The campus was built on the former site of Crile General Hospital, a military and veteran medical facility that operated from 1944 to 1964. Tri-C West used the barracks of the former hospital as its classrooms until the current campus was built in 1975.
The College has earned 11 consecutive Military Friendly® school designations in recognition of its commitment to serving veterans and active military students and their families. The most recent was awarded in February.
Each November, Tri-C celebrates that special relationship with its annual Veterans Day observance. This year’s ceremony took place virtually due to COVID-19, but the spirit remained the same.
Spectrum News 1 covered the observance, which honored Tri-C students, alumni and employees who served, and introduced Olivia Rodriguez as the 2020 Tri-C Student Veteran of the Year. Rodriguez is a 2020 Tri-C graduate and a member of the U.S. Army Reserve, serving as a combat medic with the 371st Minimal Care Detachment in Twinsburg.
