Lighting of Library Stars
Will Honor Veterans


Jacksonville State University will illuminate the stars atop Houston Cole Library tonight and will keep them lit throughout the upcoming week and weekend in honor of Veterans Day. The University is proud to continue the tradition of families of servicemen displaying a Service Flag, which had a star for each family member in the military. JSU's own "family" includes many current and former students, faculty and staff who have served our nation as members of the armed services.

The stars atop the Library, one for each of the four directions on the compass, are in honor and tribute to all men and women who have served or are currently serving our nation in the military.

On Sunday, November 16, the stars will again be dimmed until the official campus lighting ceremony, "JSU in Lights," on Monday, December 1.
