The College of Nursing premiered a fun, creative float in the university-wide parade, heard from one of the college’s most recognized alumni and participated in a service project during homecoming week.
Among the veterans participating in the Utah Honor Flight experience was Stanley Black, 82, of Delta, Utah; Black served in the Korean War.
During the second weekend of September (12-13), five individuals with connections to the BYU College of Nursing participated in an Utah Honor Flight experience.
Funded through donations, the non-profit Honor Flight Network consists of over 127 hubs in 41 states. This flight was also partially-sponsored by Millard County (Fillmore, Utah) that chartered an airplane to send veterans to Washington D.C. in commemoration of their sacrifice and in honor of their service to our country; on average each flight takes 26 veterans.
