Military veteran’s resource and wellness fair set for Friday

Military veterans, along with their family and friends, are invited to attend a wide-ranging resource and wellness fair on the Columbus State Delaware Campus.  The event is designed for current service members, military veterans and their dependents to connect with dozens of veteran-friendly organizations in the Central Ohio region.

Participants include Health Net, Heroes Care, Military One Source, Ohio State Highway Patrol, Ohio Suicide Prevention Foundation, Ohio Warriors Hockey Program, Veterans Center Mobile Van, U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Enrollment Mobile Van, and many more.

The fair will include two workshops. The American Red Cross Workshop (10 a.m. – noon) will examine reuniting, reconnecting and rebuilding for military families who are dealing with post-deployment issues. The Columbus VA Workshop (Noon – 1 p.m.), will focus on understanding military culture and readjustment and the challenges faced by combat veterans.

The fair will be held Friday, June 6, 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. at the Columbus State Delaware Campus, which is at 5100 Cornerstone Dr., in Delaware.

Several Columbus State students and staff members recently participated in the 2014 MLK Civil Rights Heritage Tour, a bus trip sponsored by the MLK Holiday Commission and the Columbus Community Relations Commission.

Tom Capps, Kamara Willoughby, Abdi Jama, and Deborah Gary were selected as this year’s student representatives based on their responses to a Civil Rights Essay contest. Nolan Harshaw, an assistant in the Testing Center, accompanied the group. 

The trip retraced the steps of Dr. King and other civil rights heroes, traveling to historic sites in Cincinnati, Atlanta, Tuskegee, Selma, Montgomery, Birmingham, Ala., and Memphis, Tenn. The tour stopped at 22 historical landmarks and museums including the Sixteenth Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, and the MLK Center and Tomb in Atlanta.

For more information about the MLK Civil Rights Heritage Tour or to find out how you can get involved next year please contact Brett Welsh in Columbus State’s office of Global Diversity and Inclusion.
