WHO: Ohio Department of Higher Education Chancellor Randy Gardner; Ohio Adjutant General Major General John C. Harris Jr.; Major General Deborah Ashenhurst, USA Ret., Director of the Ohio Department of Veterans Services.


WHAT: In response to an announcement made earlier in the spring, Chancellor Gardner will name the first group of Ohio colleges and universities designated as Collegiate Purple Star campuses for their efforts to support students with military backgrounds. The Collegiate Purple Star awards advance the work already done by Ohio's PreK-12 school system to create the Purple Star designation for military-friendly schools. Ohio is the first state in the nation to offer these designations. The Chancellor will be joined by Maj. Gen. Harris and Maj. Gen. Ashenhurst, whose agencies have provided support for the designation.
