Wounded Warrior Project® 

January 2017

Colleges across the nation are assisting injured service members by offering VIP experiences at college sporting events. These events are often life-changing for Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) veterans as they make the difficult transition back into civilian life.

This season, Northwestern University stepped up to the plate to honor a local injured veteran at every home basketball game. Bright lights reflected off the basketball court as Sterling Pollard entered Welsh-Ryan Arena and was escorted on-court for the national anthem. As the anthem played, Sterling was filled with a sense of pride after being recognized publicly for his service while his military accomplishments were broadcast to an enthusiastic crowd.

Plan now to create a game day experience that empowers our service members on their journeys to recovery. For more information, please contact Amara Betoney at amara@themeridiangroup.com.
