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.
