"It has been such a great experience for the West Coast Conference to stay involved with Wounded Warrior Project because it provides us the opportunity to not only recognize some of our nation's greatest heroes but also provide them the avenues to connect and build relationships with other Wounded Warriors while enjoying some competitive college basketball." - Stefanie Ordoveza, Assistant Commissioner of Marketing & Events at West Coast Conference.

The West Coast Conference welcomed Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) Alumni to attend the Men's and Women's basketball tournament at the Orleans Arena in Las Vegas, NV March 6-11. Warriors were honored with special on-court recognition during a men's semifinal event. 


"Handing off the game ball and the meet and greet after the game with the Belmont team really meant a lot to us (especially my son, since it was his first game). The players, coaches, students and crowd were great, with words of encouragement and support toward the WWP Alumni and our families." - Wounded Warrior Project® Alumni Jonathan Klein.

Belmont University opened their doors to the Curb Event Center on Dec. 1, 2013 and invited any local Wounded Warrior Project® (WWP) Alumni who were able to attend. WWP Alumni received complimentary game tickets, reserved seating, a Belmont gift package that included a replica jersey, and the WWP Alumni served as honorary captains and presented the game ball to the officials. After the game ended, the team and the WWP Alumni families met for an autograph and picture session.


Each November 11, Veterans Day, we look to honor and thank all who serve in the United States Armed Forces.

On the 11th of each month, NACDA and the Wounded Warrior Project will partner to salute a wounded warrior, who's life has been impacted by an event held on one of our campuses.

If you have a desire to participate in this impactful program please contact Lauren Lea or Amara Betoney.
