Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) September 25, 2012
Globe University announced today that its president, Terry Myhre, has been recognized by the National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) for his commitment to providing education to United States service members. The recognition came from the St. Croix-Chequamegan Chapter, NSDAR.
Chapter member Jolene Gutting presented the award during Globe University’s Community Partner Recognition event in St. Paul on Sept. 12.
“We have heard of the educational and financial support you [Myhre] provide to help veterans and their families further their careers after, and even during, their service to our country,” said Gutting. The plaque to Myhre, a veteran himself, was inscribed with, “In appreciation for your service to our country and your continued dedication to enriching the lives of our soldiers, our veterans and their families.”
The DAR, founded in 1890, is a volunteer women’s service organization dedicated to keeping America strong by promoting patriotism, preserving history and supporting education programs.
Globe University and its affiliate schools serve more than 1,600 military students. Of $10 million in scholarships awarded to students annually, between $6 and $7 million go to veterans and family members.
The university has a small, dedicated staff of U.S. Army veterans who help military-affiliated students select a college program that will help them achieve their academic, personal and professional goals.
