New Tech Institute to Host 5th Annual Hoosier Veterans Consortium

Tuesday, March 20
9:30 a.m.
Southern Indiana Career & Technical Center, 1901 Lynch Rd. 
It’s not everyday that high school students work on a project for the U.S. Library of Congress, but that is exactly what students at the EVSC’s New Tech Institute are doing.
Students at New Tech Institute are hosting their 5th annual Hoosier Veterans Consortium that welcomes veterans from World War II through the Afghanistan and Iraq occupations to discuss their experiences in combat. In addition to moving stories, some veterans also bring memorabilia from their war experience.
Students will record their discussions and then transcribe the interviews and send transcripts to the veterans as well as the Library of Congress to be documented for posterity.
