Now Accepting Nominations for the 2016 Veteran’s Induction Ceremony!

LCC is taking nominations for the Veteran’s Memorial, an interactive exhibit that is housed in the Health and Human Services Building on LCC’s Downtown Campus. The memorial was developed to honor Michigan veterans, with a special emphasis on those in Ingham, Eaton, and Clinton counties. Local veterans who served with distinction may be nominated for induction into the memorial.

The nomination period is open until August 1, 2016, with a special induction ceremony being held on Veterans Day this fall. Click here to nominate a veteran! Questions about the event or nominations should be directed to Andrew Cosgrove at x1655.

Mid-Michigan Honor Flight

The Office of Veteran and Military Affairs will be participating in the 2016 Mid-Michigan Honor Flight. This event involves flying Michigan veterans to Washington, D.C. to tour  our nation’s memorials.  Veterans will depart the Lansing airport at 9:30 a.m. on Wednesday, June 8 and will return at 9:15 p.m. after spending the day in Washington, D.C. Flag lines will line both sides of the airport concourse to send off and welcome our veterans home.

Along with experiencing this amazing trip, the Honor Flight organizers also try to rally support in many ways. Participants will receive packets that include ‘mail call’ letters, cards and pictures from their community. These letters are expressions of gratitude for their bravery and sacrifice as they served their country. We are encouraging all LCC employees to visit the Office of Veteran and Military Affairs by May 13  to complete a small thank you note to be distributed to the veterans during their Honor Flight.

Additional volunteer opportunities are also available to help assist the organizers on the day of the Honor Flight. For more information on how you can offer your support to this worthy cause please visit http://www.midmichiganhonorflight.com/ or contact the Office of Veteran and Military Affairs at x5246 for further information.

MI ACE “Red Out” Event – April 12

Did you know that, on average, women earn 79¢ for every $1 earned by their male counterparts, and that this number is less for women of color?

The Michigan American Council on Education Women’s Network (MI-ACE) and the Michigan Equal Pay Coalition have designated April 12, 2016 as a “Red Out” to recognize Equal Pay Day. Equal Pay Day symbolizes how far into the year a woman must work, on average, to earn as much as her male counterparts did during the previous year. Red is worn on this day as a symbol of how far women are “in the red” with regard to pay.

Please wear red on April 12, and join your LCC-ACE Planning Committee at 8:30 a.m. in the TLC Library, 2nd floor atrium for coffee and muffins. This is a drop-in event, but we would like you to stick around long enough to take a group photo at 8:45 a.m.

The MI-ACE Women’s Network, the Equal Pay Coalition, and The American Association of University Women will hold a rally at noon on the steps of the Capitol Building. Please feel free to join others from across the state to bring awareness to this important issue.
