The August 2017 Defense Council was hosted by Colorado Technical University (CTU), with more than 100 members of the Defense Council in attendance.
Mark Seglem, Regional Vice President, discussed the degrees and programs available at CTU. He also talked about CTU’s student success coach program and the how they support our men and women in uniform. At the end of this year, CTU will have awarded 500 wounded warrior scholarships totaling more than $8 million. We also welcomed three new commanders.
Three new commanders were also recognized: Col. Brian Turner, 140th Wing Commander, Col. Robert Riegel, 460th Space Wing Vice Commander; and LtCol. Ghyno Kellman with Combat Logistics Battalion 453. Kevin Hougen, Chamber President/CEO recognized Cindy Dewey from HQ Air Reserve Personal Center for her over two decades of support to the Defense Council. In addition, the USO was announced as the Defense Council’s Special Interest Area for the next year.
Finally, a huge thanks goes to the Radisson Hotel Denver, Southeast for providing the delicious breakfast.
