BCC Celebrates Veterans


This afternoon, BCC thanked and celebrated our veteran students, faculty, staff, alums, and community supporters at the Annual Veterans Luncheon. The event began with the presentation of colors by the American Legion Post 543 Color Guard, followed by a warm welcome from BCC President Gene Smith.
Joe Irreara, Col USMC (Ret.), and Tim Johnson, Captain USMCR (Ret.), awarded three Military Officers Association of America scholarships to BCC veteran students. They included Jim Carper, BG USANJ Memorial Scholarship recipient Stephen Maples, and SENCLAND MOAA Scholarship recipients Daniel Thompson and Stephanie Alexander.
Rick Sessa, Past Commander of American Legion Post 543, was the keynote speaker. Mr. Sessa shared his experiences as a young service member and all he learned during his career. He expressed gratitude for the opportunities he had in the military and for the service of his fellow veterans.
Everyone enjoyed a delicious lunch and time for fellowship. For more event photos, visit the BCC Facebook Page.
