Student Veterans' Organization Hall of Fame Competition

Oct 26, 2012

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

Purdue University

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.
