VERMILLION, S.D. - Monday was Veterans Day, a federal holiday dedicated to honoring those who have served in the United States Armed Forces.
On campus, students had the opportunity to collaborate with Jing Williams, Ph.D., on her research honoring fallen veterans of Clay County.
On this week's episode of Credit Hour, Host Michael Ewald has a conversation with Professor Williams about the project, resources available to her students, community partnerships that were engaged and why Professor Williams teaches her students the importance of community engagement.
“These veterans died for us and for the future of the country at a time, no matter what the political winds were, they were the ones actually fighting the war and they didn’t make it back,” Williams said. “I then asked myself the question, what can I do to find out these veteran's stories?”
