Print Article


BELOIT - The School District of Beloit invites all veterans to attend its Third Annual Veterans Day Program featuring Sergeant Major (SGM) Tanya M. Hudnall, the Chief Engineer Non-Commissioned Officer, U.S. Army Reserves, for the 416th Theater Engineer Command.

The event will be held from 8 - 10 a.m., on Friday at Beloit Memorial High School's (BMHS) Barkin Arena. Free breakfast will be offered to veterans by culinary students in conjunction with Aramark, according to Assistant Superintendent of Administration, Operations and Equity Darrell Williams.

"It's important we never forget the service and sacrifice veterans have made for us. In many cases we live life in freedom because of the sacrifice of others. We feel like it's good to look back and say 'thank-you for your service,'" Williams said.

Hudnall has served in the military for the past 25 years. She is a combat veteran who served during Operation Iraqi Freedom III (2004-2005). Over her many years of service, Hudnall has earned several honors including the Combat Action Badge, the Meritorious Service Medal and the Army Good Conduct Medal.

Hudnall holds a masters of science degree in management (2011), a certificate in human resource, management (2010), a bachelor of science degree in management (2009) and an associate of science degree in business (2008), all from Cardinal Stritch University in Milwaukee.

Williams said Hudnall is a person who believes in a strong work ethic balanced with integrity and character. He said one of her favorite quotes is: "The world of tomorrow belongs to those who hustle today."

The event also will feature a performance by the BMHS choir. Following the program, there will be information available on veteran's benefits.

Williams said the breakfast event has been growing each year. Many students invited friends and family members who have served.

"It's good they can reach out and touch them and say thank you in their own special way," Williams said.
