Cranmer Dining & Conference Center, 430 Helen Flatt Drive, Columbia, KY The luncheon is open to veterans and their spouses or a guest, along with veterans' widows and widowers.

This year's speaker will be Lindsey Wilson Assistant Professor of Nursing and Division Chair for Nursing and Health Dr. Marian Smith. She will speak to the historical significance of nursing's care for military members through the life of nursing's founder, Florence Nightingale. Emphasis will be placed on the role of nursing schools to educate students to be immersed in content and outreach experiences to enhance care for members of the armed services.

"Today's nurses have a special connection and responsibility to veterans because of the standards of care Nightingale established during her service in the Crimean War," said Dr. Marian Smith. "Nurses consider it a great honor when we can interact and reach out to our veterans. It's one small way that we can give back, join forces and express our deep gratitude for their service."

In addition, to the luncheon, seniors from LWC's nursing program will be available to provide literature and answer questions for the veterans about overall health and wellness in the Cranmer Dining Center foyer beginning at 10:30 a.m. CT.

This is the 14th-annual Veterans Appreciation Luncheon, which was started by the LWC National Alumni Association in 2003 as part of the college's centennial celebrations.

The annual event is not held on Veterans Day so it does not conflict with community celebrations on that day.

"It's great that we will have a member of Lindsey Wilson's faculty to give this year's keynote address at the luncheon," said Dean of Students, Chris Schmidt. "The Veterans Appreciation Luncheon is one of our favorite events at Lindsey Wilson College. The opportunity to recognize, remember and honor the men and women who served our nation has quickly become one of the highlights of the LWC school year.

LWC Veterans Appreciation Luncheon will be held at 11:30 CT on Monday, Nov. 7. 2016, in Cranmer Dining Center, 430 Helen Flatt Drive, Columbia, KY. The luncheon is free to all veterans, veterans' survivors and a guest. Guests should RSVP by contacting Lindsey Wilson at alumni@lindsey.edu or 270-384-8400.
