The Centenary College Choir ensemble performed “The Star-Spangled Banner,” the national anthem, as part of the Shreveport college’s third annual Veterans Day Tribute.
The keynote address was delivered by the head of the Air Force Global Strike Command Lt. Gen. Stephen Wilson.
Centenary’s president David Rowe introduced the general, calling him a friend and giving a snapshot of Wilson’s job overseeing the country’s intercontinental ballistic missiles and nuclear weapons cache.
Centenary College in Shreveport affirmed its commitment to the Yellow Ribbon GI Education Enhancement Program at a Veterans Day program. Yellow Ribbon schools help students avoid up to all out-of-pocket tuition and fees associated with education programs that may exceed the Post 9/11 GI Bill tuition benefit. Centenary president David Rowe said post 9/11 veterans and their dependents will not pay tuition to attend the college.
