Kennesaw State honored two of its own this Veterans Day with events on the Campus Green. President Daniel S. Papp reminded the crowd that “Kennesaw State is proud to be recognized as a military friendly school, and we want to be even more so in the future.”

The family and friends of 1st Lt. Jonathan Walsh, who was killed in Afghanistan on April 22, dedicated a red maple (Autumn Flame) on the Campus Green beside Kennesaw Hall and unveiled a plaque in his memory. Later, KSU alumnus, Army Maj. Stefan Hutnik of Marietta, delivered the keynote address.
