RVC celebrating Veterans Day with 2 events

Posted:
ROCKFORD (WREX) -

Rock Valley College is honoring our Veterans with two events this week, just prior to Veterans Day.

The first took place Thursday at the RVC Stenstrom Center for Career Education, and the second will take place Friday at noon in the Student Center Atrium at RVC's main campus.

Both events will feature a color guard, music from the Rock Valley choir, and readings of remembrance from students. Thursday's speaker was Brian Troy, a former student who received a heart transplant. The donor was a US Marine veteran.

Donations for care packages to be sent to troops overseas will be collected during each event, as well as donations for the Rockford Food Pantry.
