On Tuesday February 6th, over 50 students from Cass Technical High School in Detroit attended a College Tour at Wayne State University. This event was sponsored by the U.S. Army in conjunction with the 100 Black Men of Greater Detroit.
During the day students learned about careers in the Army, as well as how the Army can help them achieve their higher education goals. Additionally they were given presentations by Wayne State staff on admission requirements and financial aid opportunities at the university.
They also got to meet a very special Army guest, as Brigadier General Kevin Vereen, the commanding general for the Army recruiting center in Fort Knox Kentucky, was in attendance and addressed the students. BG General Vereen shared how his career in the Army has allowed him to achieve his personal as well as his professional goals while in service to his country.
Special thanks to Colonel Elizabeth Peters who is in charge of the Junior ROTC program at Cass Tech, Patrick Lindsey, VP of Government Affairs, Wayne State University and Major Gilbert and Lieutenant Harden from Wayne State University for their assistance in making this event a resounding success!
