With an average attendance of over 200 people, GHC continues its annual Military Family Fun Day set for April 21st starting at 10AM and ending at 1PM on the Floyd Campus. The event is free and open to the public and hosts over 15 vendors and a 20-piece military band.

The event is a partnership between GHC and the Student Veterans of America.

New this year will be representatives from the Wounded Warrior Project. The WWP serves veterans and service members who incurred a physical or mental injury, illness, or wound, co-incident to their military service on or after September 11, 2001 and their families.

“Georgia Highlands College wants to make sure we take time to show appreciation to our military students, as well as their families,” said Veterans Affairs Coordinator Amy Wise.

The event—which includes free food, door prizes, Bingo, a bounce house, and much more—is also open to the public, Wise said. Additionally, the Veterans Crisis center, Atlanta VA Medical, and the VA mobile vet center will also be in attendance.

“This is also a wonderful opportunity to invite military families from the community on campus to meet our student veterans and other military families in the community they may not already know,” she said.
