Major League Baseball, the Cleveland Indians and Baldwin Wallace University celebrate the opening of the All-Star Student Veterans Center at Baldwin Wallace, with an unveiling celebration taking place Fri 7/5.
A single family home owned by the university will be turned into a support center for the nearly 100 veterans enrolled at the school, with study rooms, lounge areas, a full kitchen and a gaming area.
“This space will support and enrich the experience of veterans working to earn a degree and transition into new civilian career paths,” said Britnee Davis, president of BW’s Student Veteran Organization (SVO). “The project addresses the distinctive needs of our student veteran population.”
The community enrichment project is tied to Major League Baseball’s Midsummer Classic hosted by the Cleveland Indians at Progressive Field on Tue 7/, with MLB and the Cleveland Indians helping to fund the initiative.
