A Message from Terri Graham, Interim President, West and Downtown Campuses

Date: Tuesday, November 9, 2021
Time: 1 p.m.
Location: West Campus, SSB Patio

The Valencia African Heritage Association (VAHA) in partnership with the Arts and Humanities department is hosting “Veteran Voices — Valencia Celebrates Veterans on West” — a Veterans Day event to honor and connect with veterans in our community. The event will begin with a performance of the national anthem, followed by a dramatic reading from an ancient play and a panel discussion.

The dramatic reading will set the stage for the panel discussion by presenting an emotional scene where Hercules (aka Herakles) has to survive incredible trauma and despair. The trauma of war combined with the return to civilian life creates a powerful opening for discussion. It is this concept that we are trying to explore in this event. Our goal is to create an open discussion with the audience about these incredibly important issues.

For more information about this event, contact Christa Menninger, professor, humanities, at or 407-582-5262.
