College of DuPage President Dr. Ann Rondeau will provide the keynote presentation at this year's Veterans Day at the Illinois State Fair on Aug. 14. "We are very impressed with Dr. Rondeau's distinguished leadership experience and are pleased that she has accepted our invitation to speak on this important day at the Illinois State Fair," said Harry Sawyer, Deputy Director of the Illinois Department of Veterans Affairs. "In the more than 35 years of my involvement in this program, Dr. Rondeau is the first woman invited to provide the keynote at this event. While we honor all veterans on this day, we want to emphasize the important role women have in their service and protection of our nation. We also want to emphasize opportunities for growth and accomplishment after their military careers. As the second female three-star Admiral in the history of the Navy, and now the President of the largest community college in Illinois, we look forward to Dr. Rondeau serving as an inspiration to our veterans."
