GV helps open Army resource center

GVL Staff

Representatives from Grand Valley State University attended the grand opening ceremony of the Mary Walker Army Strong Community Center in Walker, Mich. on March 3. The community center is one of five centers of its kind in the U.S. and the first in the Midwest, and provides resources to service members and veterans and their family members.

GVSU was the only university from West Michigan to sign an agreement to participate in the Community Covenant program, which is designed to foster state and community partnerships with the Army to improve the quality of life for soldiers and their families. The covenant was signed by Grand Valley Assistant Dean of Students Steven Lipnicki, Commanding General of the U.S. Army Reserve Jack Stultz and community and government members.
