On Friday, Nov. 10, Lynn University recognized teachers, students and family from Lynn who served the U.S.

President Kevin Ross gave a speech and showed Lynn’s appreciation for those who fought and served for the U.S.

“I want to take this time to recognize each individual in front of us today and what they have done for our country,” said Ross. From teachers, students, family and alumni, each individual was recognized one by one. The ages ranged from 20 to 92 years old.

One of these individuals, Jack Slotnick, is the oldest of Lynn graduates.

“My father is turning 92 and he is the oldest Lynn graduate and has received a standing ovation,” said Slotnick’s daughter. “This ceremony is really special to me and my family and [it] gets better every year.”

After the ceremony, Lynn held a barbecue for those families and everyone in the Lynn community to enjoy in the Elmore Dining Hall. With decorations, food and music for everyone to enjoy, this year’s Veterans Day ceremony and the Red, White and Blue Barbecue was a smashing success.
