Wor-Wic Chapter of the SALUTE Veterans National Honor Society

SALUTE is the only national honor society recognizing and honoring the service and the scholastic achievements of student veterans.  Over 270 colleges nationwide have a SALUTE chapter on their campus.
SALUTE Veterans National Honor Society was made possible by an ACE/Wal-Mart Foundation Success for Veterans Grant, and is headquartered out of Colorado State University.

SALUTE =  Service – Academics – Leadership – Unity – Tribute - Excellence
To SALUTE is to acknowledge, congratulate, pay respects, and recognize. These terms are synonymous with what SALUTE National hopes to do for our members who have shown courage, strength, leadership, excellence, and perseverance in their military endeavors and now are showing that same commitment to their academic careers.
 
The students who are inducted into SALUTE represent every slice of American military and veterans in higher education, at two and four year institutions. Members include retirees, disabled veterans, active duty military, National Guard and reservists returning to higher education, starting second careers, or helping fund their college careers with military service.
