Salute to Kindness: A Stadium-Sized Thank You to Honor Veterans

Otterbein’s 100th Homecoming was full of opportunities to celebrate the values that make our University a distinctive and caring community.

One of the biggest moments came by way of the Homecoming football pre-game show that was designed to create and record a BIG message of kindness and appreciation for United States veterans and soldiers.

More than 165 Otterbein music students, alumni and community volunteers from Westerville’s Church of the Messiah and the Church of the Master led the Memorial Stadium in singing “America the Beautiful.”

The Cardinal Marching Band further inspired the crowd with their performance of an “America Fantasy.” Additionally, students from Otterbein and Capital University’s joint ROTC Program presented the colors before the National Anthem.

This “Salute to Kindness” veteran video greeting will be distributed broadly in hopes of passing along kindness and thanks and is one of several ways Otterbein is honoring those who have served.

 

A Kindness Matters Tip:  Be sure to return to this page on Nov. 10 to view the message. Please pass it along via email and social media to make sure it reaches the veterans in your life.

AND, Otterbein student veterans are invited to join us Nov. 13, for a Veteran’s Lunch with Dean Bob Gatti.
