July 1, 2019

Tom Zurhellen '91 Tom Zurhellen '91, a writer and English professor at Marist College and a Navy veteran, began walking across the country this summer from Oregon to NY – to raise awareness about homeless veterans and suicide among veterans.

He set a goal of 22 miles a day, which points to a shocking statistic -- the number of vets who take their own lives every day.Tom will be in Beloit in a couple of weeks, July 18-19, and we want to make him feel welcome.

Stay tuned for an announcement about a forthcoming event.
