Video: Staff, Student and Alumni Veteran Recognition

Video Transcript:

[Daniel Razo]: In honor of Veterans Day, we at Dallas College would like to honor all the men and women who have served and continue to serve this great nation. Our appreciation for you and other service members is truly ineffable. Thank you so much for all you have done and continue to do. We also would like to recognize our staff and students who have served and continue to serve. We must not forget the found members that continue to support the success of veterans and military members. In addition to Veterans Day, we have annual events such as Women's Veterans Day, which was established on June 9, 2017, and was signed into law by Governor Greg Abbott, designated June 12th as Women's Veterans Day. This year we hosted a virtual segment for Women's Veterans Day in collaboration with the Texas Women's Enterprise Center at the Dallas VA and other non-profit organizations. Dallas College also hosted annual mental health summit every year. The 2020 Dallas Veterans Mental Health Summit consisted of operation healthy mindset, which was a virtual event to promote awareness and education, regarded the mental health needs of veterans and other military connected persons, such as families, caregivers, et cetera. It is intended to build collaborative relationships among persons and organizations that serve veterans and to connect veterans with those services.
