Veterans will be honored throughout the celebration, with special recognition given to Native American vets. Phill Allen, a U.S. Army veteran from the Nez Perce tribe, will be this year’s guest speaker. Allen earned his bachelor’s and master’s degree from the University of Idaho and is a doctoral candidate at Washington State University. He has taught at Northwest Indian College, Washington State University, and Lewis-Clark State College and works for Nez Perce Tourism.


“Native American veterans have dedicated their lives in service to our country and have done so with distinction throughout our military history,” Edmonds College President Dr. Amit B. Singh said. “We are honored to pay tribute to their service and to have Mr. Allen as a speaker at our 10th annual celebration.” 


Matthew Durkee, a U.S. Army veteran, and Edmonds College’s Veteran Resource Center director, will serve as the event's emcee.
