Special to The Hays Daily News

NCK Tech recently announced the 2013 recipients of the Veteran's Honorary Associates Degree. Twenty-two veterans received the honor during graduation ceremonies on the Beloit and Hays campuses in May.

Those veterans, their military service branch and hometown, honored during the Hays commencement ceremony were Ralph Taxter, Hays; Ronald Colling, Manning, Iowa; Richard Lowry, Stockton; Michael McGregor, Beloit; and Thomas Tush, Garnett.

In appreciation of veterans, NCK Tech established the Veterans Honorary Associates Degree of Technical Education award in 2012. The degree honors those servicemen and women who, upon leaving the armed forces, returned home and immediately joined the workforce.

Although these veterans acquired technical skills during their military service and while performing their job, many did not have the opportunity to earn a college degree. By awarding the honorary degree, NCK Tech acknowledges those veterans for their military service, their technical skills and their lifetime contribution to our nation's workforce.

To be considered for the degree, applicants must be at least 50 years old and have been honorably discharged. Posthumous nominations also will be considered.
