Veterans Visit SM for Veterans Day Presentation
Veterans Visit SM for Veterans Day Presentation

On Monday evening, November 12, four local veterans visited St. Mark's for a Veterans Day presentation in Taft Hall.

Gregg Yanchuk (U.S. Army – father of Taylor Yanchuk '19), Steve Whynot (U.S. Navy), Mark Sabourin (U.S. Marine Corps – 24 years), and Lap Yan (combat veteran, 23 years in the U.S. Marine Corps) spoke about their military experiences (service both past and ongoing, tours overseas in places like Iraq, etc), why they joined up, and life beyond the military.

The event—"Honoring Veterans' Service"— was sponsored by the Southborough Rotary Club, in conjunction with SM Dean of Students David Vachris, himself a member of Southborough Rotary and father of SM alumna Maddie Vachris '13, an Annapolis graduate currently serving in the U.S. Navy. The presentation was well-received by an audience of interested students, faculty, and friends.
