Beck PRIDE program for wounded veterans is begun
Starting today, ASU is implementing a new center for the Personal Rehabilitation, Individual Development, and Education (PRIDE) of injured military personnel who have served in defense of the United States and who would benefit from rehabilitation and training in a university environment. The Beck PRIDE Center for America's Wounded Veterans was conceptualized and founded by ASU alumni Charlotte and Buddy Beck, of Fairfax, Va. The center, designed to supplement but not supplant other federal and state veterans' programs, according to Chancellor Robert L. Potts, will be housed in the College of Nursing and Health Professions. Dr. Susan Hanrahan, dean of the college, says that services will be free, pending available funding and eligibility. Congressman Marion Berry has expressed his support for the center, and other contributors will be Sigma Pi Educational Foundation, Inc. and the Governor Mike Beebe Veterans Scholarship fund. For more information, see the NewsPage release.
