Purdue University North Central will host a grand opening of the Leonard J. Brown Veterans Center on Thursday, Nov. 13 at 11 a.m. in the Library Student Faculty Building, Room 67.
The event will be led by Veterans Coordinator and current PNC student-veteran Jason Wray. Chancellor Dr. James B. Dworkin and Vice Chancellor Paul McGuiness will be in attendance. Refreshments will be served.
The family of Leonard J. Brown, who served as a Tec 4 in the 474th Infantry Regiment from July 28, 1944 to April 15, 1946, has generously supported the PNC veterans center. The center will be used for PNC student-veterans to hold group and individual meetings. It will seamlessly allow for interaction in the campus community and also provide a place for students with a shared background to gather.
The Leonard J. Brown Veterans Center will be relocated to the PNC Student Services and Activities Complex when that building is complete in spring, 2016.
