Saint Leo University has earned much recognition for ongoing efforts in support of active-duty military men and women, veterans, and their families. Among those honors are the following:
In March, Saint Leo University partnered with the Military Makeover Team for an episode of Military Makeover airing on Lifetime Television®, featuring an interview with University President Bill Lennox.
In July, University Campus hosted the Steel Mags Summer Summit, a retreat for members of the Steel Mags Sorority (wives, sisters, and daughters of those in the U.S. Army Special Forces). Saint Leo partnered with the Steel Mags, the Green Beret Foundation, and Veterans Alternative, a nonprofit founded by Saint Leo alumnus and U.S. Army veteran Brian Anderson ’14.
From September 28 to 30, Saint Leo faculty, staff, students, and alumni took part in the One Community Now Stand Down, assisting veterans in need and veterans in transition. The event, held at the Concourse Rotary Pavilion in Shady Hills, FL, helps put those who served in the U.S. military in touch with needed services, including medical care.
