Honoring the Military with Honor Tree

The Globe University-Woodbury campus honors service members and veterans this month with an “Honor Tree.”

The Honor Tree at Globe University-Woodbury Campus

“This tree is a way to recognize the courage and sacrifice of those who served or are currently serving our country,” said Lisa Palermo, campus director at the Globe University-Woodbury campus. “We encourage students, staff and faculty to tie a ribbon or a message to the tree as a silent way of thanking and paying tribute to our military.”

Colorful ribbons will adorn The Honor Tree to say “thank you” to military and service members where it will be displayed in the campus’s front entrance during the month of November.

The Honor Tree Color Code

  • White Ribbon: In memory of a family member or friend who lost their life in service
  • Red Ribbon: If you are a student, staff or family member who is in the military
  • Blue Ribbon: In honor of a family member who is currently serving our country
  • Yellow Ribbon: General support and thanks to all veterans and service members

As a Yellow Ribbon Campus, Globe University-Woodbury would like thank all of the brave men and women who served and protected or are currently serving and protecting. We appreciate your sacrifice and are indebted to you for your selfless service.

Yellow Ribbon Campus

Globe University-Woodbury was designated as a Yellow Ribbon Campus in 2010. The Yellow Ribbon Network in Woodbury, Minn., helps connect schools, local units of government, law enforcement, social services, churches, and civic and volunteer organizations for the special needs of a military family during the deployment cycle.

The Woodbury campus has more than 100 military students, which includes family members of those in the armed forces. The campus has been especially active in supporting those students, veterans and their family members around the community, according to Mike Hughes, director of military student services at Globe University.
