Gardner-Webb University is proud to announce it will be designated as a Purple Heart University for its military and veteran support, the first such honor for a higher education institution in the state of North Carolina. The Military Order of the Purple Heart (MOPH) and Gardner-Webb invite veterans to a ceremony to mark the honor at 10 a.m. on Jan. 28 in the University’s Dover Campus Center. The program will include a salute to veterans, a proclamation and plaque for the University and a presentation on the Purple Heart, which is bestowed on U.S. military members who are wounded by adversaries in combat.
