The U.S. Army recently recognized Eileen Jevis ’01 with the Commander’s Award for Public Service, the fourth highest honor that can be given to a civilian.
Jevis coordinated the inaugural Veterans Day Ceremony at Syracuse University, where she works as public relations manager.
“Eileen’s leadership in executing the first-ever Veterans Day Ceremony at Syracuse University created an awareness about veterans on campus and allowed the university to honor those who serve in the military,” Lt. Col. Susan Hardwick said in a press release. “The ceremony was extremely well done.”
Jevis said she was humbled and honored by the award. “It is very gratifying to be able to honor the students, faculty and staff who have served our country with such allegiance,” she said.
