BPCC Hosts Registration Event for Military Dependents in Honor of Month of the Military Child

by Minden Press-Herald

Bossier Parish Community College (BPCC) is set to commemorate the Month of the Military Child with a dedicated on-campus registration event aimed at supporting military children.

Dubbed “Operation Purple,” the event is scheduled for Wednesday, April 17, from 9 am to 2 pm in the Moran Room (Building H, first floor) on BPCC’s Bossier campus, located at 6220 East Texas Street. Operation Purple aligns with Purple Up Day, a nationwide initiative that acknowledges the sacrifices and resilience of military-connected youth.

The primary goal of Operation Purple is to create a platform to honor and appreciate the unique experiences of children from military families. By offering registration opportunities for upcoming semesters, the event aims to cultivate a sense of community and provide support for these young individuals who often face challenges associated with military life.

Operation Purple is open to all military families in the Shreveport/Bossier City area, with attendees encouraged to wear purple as a symbol of solidarity with military children and their families.

BPCC’s commitment to supporting military-affiliated students has been recognized through its designation as a Top Ten Military Friendly® School and Top Ten Military Friendly® Spouse School for the 2024-2025 academic year. This acknowledgment places BPCC among the top ten community colleges nationwide. Additionally, BPCC’s Natchitoches and Sabine Valley campuses have received the Military Friendly® designation in the gold category, marking the 14th consecutive year the College has been recognized.

The Veterans Resource Center (VRC) at BPCC serves as a centralized hub for military and veteran students to access essential support services on both state and federal levels. Located on the Bossier campus, the VRC caters to all military-affiliated students, including active duty, veterans, Reservists, National Guard members, military spouses, and dependent children.
