Averett University hosted its first 9/11 appreciation luncheon for veterans and first responders on Wednesday. Bill Wooten, executive director of Averett’s Center for Community Engagement and Career Competitiveness, came up with the idea for the gathering as a way to honor first responders and Danville veterans. The lunch was hosted at Danville’s American Legion Post 325. Wooten plans to continue the luncheon every year at Post 325.
