Posted By Kevin R. Johnson, May 2, 2014

Last weekend, I was pleased to attend an awards reception and ceremony organized by the King Hall Veterans Association.

The association awarded the first Gary Solis Veterans Service Award to student Michael Van Derwood. A number of other awards were also presented at the event at King Hall. Gary Solis '71, who was a visiting professor at UC Davis last fall, came out from Washington, D.C. to attend the ceremony.

It was great to see Gary, a group of happy students, several veteran alums including Steven Suchil '80 and Bob Barton '88, and Professors Ed Imwinkelried and William Wiecek celebrating King Hall's veteran students.
