[257] MTSU Daniels Veterans Center recognizes LKQ Corp.

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. — Representatives from the Charlie and Hazel Daniels Veterans and Military Family Center recently thanked Nashville business LKQ Corp. for its hiring of MTSU student veteran Jason Gill.

Led by Keith M. Huber, senior adviser for veterans and leadership initiatives, and Daniels Center Director Hilary Miller, MTSU’s veterans program awarded a certificate of appreciation to LKQ executives Friday (Jan. 19) at their Grassmere Park Drive office in Nashville.

The Daniels Center and its Veterans Transitioning Home Office continues to present framed certificates of appreciation to companies who have hired MTSU student veterans or family members, and for demonstrating continuous support to this population.

Huber and Miller made the presentation to LKQ’s Steve Gupton, Jack Patterson and T.C. Olson. Gupton and Patterson are veterans; Olson currently is serving.

Following the visit and presentation, Gill, an accounting systems coordinator, emailed a thank-you to the Daniels leadership team “for taking the time out of your busy schedule to meet with some of our company’s leaders.”

“I absolutely enjoyed spending time with you, Dr. Miller, and Lt. Gen. Huber,” Gill wrote in his email to Shane Smith, a leader in the Daniels Center’s Veterans Transitioning Home Office that tries to match students with potential employers.

Huber is a retired U.S. Army lieutenant general with nearly 40 years of service to his country.

“I am also very appreciative of your service to this nation’s veterans,” Gill added. “Your service and your team will be in my thoughts and prayers as you serve our nation’s finest.”

LKQ Corp. is a global distributor of vehicle products, including replacement parts, components and systems used in the repair and maintenance of vehicles, as well as specialty vehicle products and accessories.

The Veterans Transitioning Home Office assists students with all aspects of the career decision-making and job search processes. Smith is veterans’ employee search agent.
