Retired Air Force Col. John W. Clark shared his story as a Vietnam prisoner of war to a packed Bixby Lecture Hall in ceremonies marking Columbia College’s 12th annual Military Recognition Day on Thursday, May 23.
Columbia College Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Kevin Palmer recently announced the hiring of Robert Boone as associate vice president for Columbia College Global-Military. In this role, Boone will oversee the operations of the college’s 18 venues located on military installations around the country.
It’s an annual tradition on the Columbia College main campus, this raising of the United States and Columbia College flags on the Friday before Veteran’s Day. The scene, brightened by a fresh blanket of snow on Bass Commons from the night before, is a familiar one for Landon Miller ’18, who served on the color guard for last Friday’s ceremony.
