WCC Observing Holiday, Purple Heart Run Truck on Campus

June 29, 2017

Wayne Community College’s offices will be closed Friday, June 30 through Tuesday, July 4 for the Independence Day holiday.

During this holiday, the Purple Heart Run will have events in the portion of the campus’ front parking lot (Wayne Memorial Drive) closest to the Veterans Monument. The project’s mobility-equipped 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor truck is expected to arrive on the campus at 2 p.m. on July 1. The community is invited to greet it and enjoy hot dogs. On July 3, a ceremony will be held at 9 a.m. and at noon that day, the vehicle will continue its journey crisscrossing the country to promote mobility for combat-wounded veterans.

These activities are sponsored by the Military Order of the Purple Heart and Wounded Warriors Family Support. For more information on the Purple Heart Run, contact Sylvania Wilkerson, commander of the Eastern Carolina Memorial Chapter (657) of the Military Order of the Purple Heart at (919) 920-7095 or swilkerson@nc.rr.com.
