A special event will showcase the achievements of Indiana’s award-winning student veterans’ organizations (SVOs) from three years of organization plan competitions.
Operation Diploma, an initiative of the Military Family Research Institute at Purdue, has invited six SVOs to present their achievements to a panel of expert judges before a live audience Saturday, October 27, at the NCAA Headquarters.
The SVO Hall of Fame is the culmination of seven previously-held grant competitions sponsored by Operation Diploma.
Participating SVOs include:
Ball State University
Indiana University Southeast
Ivy Tech Bloomington
Ivy Tech Sellersburg
The University of Evansville
One of the judges is Michael Dakduk, executive director of Student Veterans of America.
He spoke with WBAA’s Mike Loizzo about the event and his organization, which aims to help SVOs.
