July 7, 2014
KOKOMO, Ind. — Disabled American Veterans (DAV) Chapter 28 honors Indiana University Kokomo for its support to veterans. Chancellor Susan Sciame-Giesecke received a plaque of appreciation during a recent ceremony.

"We're proud of our student veterans and work to help them succeed in earning their degrees here," Sciame-Giesecke said. "We hope you continue to meet here in the future. This campus is your home as well as ours."

Local DAV Commander Jerry Fivecoate recognized the campus' ongoing commitment to veterans, including inviting the DAV to meet in the Kelley Student Center.

"IU Kokomo participates in military appreciation week, and has a Student Veterans' Association and a financial aid counselor who specifically works with veterans," he said. "We have many veterans here on campus, and Chancellor Sciame-Giesecke is very supportive of them."

Currently, IU Kokomo has 180 student veterans enrolled in classes, and graduated 24 veterans with the Class of 2014.
