At just 17 years old, fresh out of high school, Sam Manchester walked into a recruiting office in St. Johnsbury, Vermont. Thirteen weeks later, when he turned 18, he became a Marine.

CCV students, staff, faculty, and members of the community filled the CCV-Winooski lobby on Wednesday afternoon for “Hogs & Dogs,” a Veterans Day appreciation event organized in honor of CCV’s veteran and military students and their families.

“The reason why I didn’t go to school right after high school is because I couldn’t afford it, and my parents couldn’t afford it.” That could be the voice of any number of CCV students, but in this story, it’s the voice of Fathima Salahudeen, a STEM studies major who immigrated to Vermont from Sri Lanka in 2008.
