KCRW features vets

Ahmanson Foundation support

National Public Radio contributor Lisa Napoli reported on KCRW on October 9 about an event hosted on campus for war veterans who are studying at area colleges and universities. The Ahmanson Foundation selected Otis as one of 25 private schools for their Ahmanson Veteran Scholarship Initiative (AVSI), which provides assistance to student veterans as they assimilate into civilian life and complete their education. Participating student veterans gathered at Otis on September 22, where they met William H. Ahmanson, President of The Ahmanson Foundation, and alumnus Kent Twitchell (’77 MFA) who served as an illustrator for the United States Air Force. Napoli also interviewed current students Brian Bankston and Nick Edinger.
