Although this weekend serves as the unofficial start to summer for many, Memorial Day means so much more than a backyard get-together. It is about honoring those who made the ultimate sacrifice in service to our incredible country. I have noted in the past that freedom is first on the list of our code of ethics at Northwood University. That value stands at the top because of the brave men and women in uniform who choose to put their country and the freedoms of their fellow Americans ahead of themselves.
Northwood has many of these brave and selfless men and women threaded throughout our more than 40-year history of serving veterans, military members and their families. Their leadership and commitment to service and the Northwood Idea make them unparalleled business leaders and community pillars. We are proud to be able to serve our nation’s finest at our military installation locations in Selfridge, Michigan and Fort Worth, Texas, and also online as they serve around the globe.
This weekend as we surround ourselves with family and friends, I hope all of the members of the Northwood family take pause to reflect upon those who have come before us and afforded us the freedom to live in this great country.
Have a great weekend,
