In celebration of Veterans Day on Wednesday, Nov. 11, Carroll will offer special perks for veterans in honor of their service. The main event will be a Teams lunch with Sgt. Greg Fischer, founder of Inner Edge Consulting, who will discuss networking and job hunting in a prerecorded presentation. Veterans will receive a link via email to access the talk.
Fischer served in three combat deployments in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom. As a U.S. Marine, he led and participated in combat and humanitarian missions. Honorably discharged at the rank of sergeant in 2006, he received his B.S. and MBA degrees before spending 10 years in the insurance and finance sectors as a leader and coach. In 2020, he founded Inner Edge Consulting, where he coaches people on how to achieve their personal and professional goals.
The Carroll community is now being asked to wrote notes of thanks to veterans. Due to COVID-19, this activity will not take place in the Campus Center but will be handled at a department level. Once you have filled out a card, they can be dropped off at the front desk of the library, the Campus Center information desk and the registrar’s office.
Other perks of note for veterans, all on Nov. 11:
- Free Food: Veterans eat free in the Main Dining Room (MDR) with their military ID.
- Vets Shop for Less: Vets receive a 20% discount on one item in-store at the Pioneer Shop with military ID.
