SCC to Host Free Lunch for Veterans


Surry Community College will be hosting a Veterans Luncheon event on Thursday, Nov. 10, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The event, in honor of Veterans Day, will be held in the Grand Hall of the Shelton-Badgett North Carolina Center for Viticulture & Enology on Surry’s campus in Dobson. This lunch is free to all veterans and spouses. Food will be served at 11:30 a.m., with a presentation of flags and entertainment to follow.

Joseph McDougal, Veterans Affairs and Financial Aid Specialist, says, “On behalf of Surry Community College, we would like to thank all veterans for serving our country and protecting our freedom.”

Surry Community College was selected as a Military Friendly® School for 2022-2023. This is the eleventh year the college has received this honor.

The Military Friendly® Schools list has set the standard for higher education institutions in providing the best opportunities for veterans and their spouses. This prestigious list provides a comprehensive guide for veterans and their families using data sources from federal agencies and proprietary survey information from participating organizations and is compiled by VIQTORY.

Surry Community College also offers a Veteran's Center, where veterans have the opportunity to take advantage of educational benefits. These benefits vary based on the chapter, and eligibility is determined by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).
