It was great to have such a wide variety of attendees — student veterans, veteran and non-veteran faculty, deans, and administrators, alumni, and veterans from the community, including Pete Buttigieg, Mayor of South Bend and Brian Pawlowski, the mayor’s former Deputy Chief of Staff and now Assistant Executive Director of Community Investment/Director of Business Development. We had a wonderful discussion and are looking forward to our next meeting in April.
Join South Bend’s Mayor Peter Buttigieg and Deputy Chief of Staff Brian Pawlowski for the next Veterans Book Club!
