When Kathrine Paterson began writing she was sure that she didn’t want to add another mediocre writer to the world; but when one of her college professors told her that it was maybe what God had in store for her, she thought she’d give it a shot. Fast forward through seven years of writing and she published one story in a Roman Catholic magazine that unfortunately went out of print one month after her story was published.
In honor of the 20th anniversary of 9/11, ETSU’s ROTC Buc Battalion partnered with the Stop Soldier Suicide organization to raise money to help service members in need. The event was hosted by VetFest, an annual festival held in Whitehall Delaware that is filled with music, food, and laughter, where all the proceeds collected from VetFest go directly to Stop Soldier Suicide. ETSU ROTC had over 110 participants and raised a total of $4,300 for the Stop Soldier Suicide charity.
