NATCHITOCHES – Northwestern State University has launched a new initiative to honor graduating military and veteran students by providing them with red, white and blue Military Honor cords to wear as part of their commencement regalia.
“These red, white and blue cords are a special recognition to show NSU’s gratitude and respect for the men and women who have made an unwavering commitment to both their nation and their academic studies,” said NSU President Dr. Chris Maggio.
Graduating students who are veterans or are currently serving in the military on active duty, including National Guard and Reserves, are authorized to wear a Military Honor cord. The cords are available at the Office of Technology, Innovation and Economic Development, 100 South Hall, across Caspari Street from Turpin Stadium. The cords can be picked up any time before commencement.
