The USM LAC Veterans Club, in cooperation with the Student Government Association, held a flag raising ceremony on September 11 in front of the main campus entrance in honor of those who lost their lives on September 11, 2001. Students, staff and faculty all took part. The ceremony included short words by USM LAC Dean Joyce Gibson and Lewiston Mayor Robert Macdonald. Pictured above raising the flag are Veterans Club Members Marcel Couturier and Julie Lynch. The Veterans Club at USM LAC helps to connect its members with on-campus resources needed for college success and support these members as they transition from the military to civilian life. It also generates awareness of veterans on campus and serves as a voice for veterans on campus.
