The Summit Project was honored to join Eastern Maine Community College on Friday, 12/13/13. Together we celebrated the life of former student and first EMCC Student Veterans Association President, Robert E. Gilbert. The SVA conducted a ribbon cutting ceremony of a new student veterans lounge, dedicated in Robert’s name. Robert was a strong advocate for Maine veterans and he championed the creation of the SVA during his time at EMCC. We were truly honored to be invited to the event, share our mission, and speak with other community leaders to include Lawrence Barrett, Ed.D – EMCC President; Scott Mitchell – SVA Commanding Officer, and Ben Sprague – Mayor City of Bangor.
Thank you Robert E. Gilbert for your passion to serve veterans and carrying your stone to your summit. Maine heroes are NOT forgotten!
