Leadership of SBS
President: Brittani Rose
Staff Advisor: Kathi Edinger
Students Behind our Soldiers (SBS) is a student-run organization that was founded in the Fall of 2007 by Amanda “Mandi” Verlander who had a vision to serve and give back to the brave men and women who serve in the U.S. military and their families. The organization’s primary activity is sending care packages overseas; it has sent over 500 packages to date. The group has also assisted the Office of Military Affairs with events such as Military Family Fun Day, and Military Emphasis Week in addition to other various community and campus events throughout the semester.
The mission of Students Behind our Soldiers is to create awareness and appreciation for our military and support for service members through a variety of methods such as:
There is no greater need than to support and minister to those who risk their lives daily for our freedoms. The brave men and women at the front lines protect the freedom that we all enjoy and often take for granted. Although a simple “thank you” goes a long way with these humble guardians, SBS is dedicated to doing much more by offering support and showing sincere gratitude for their sacrifice.
Students Behind our Soldiers is approved for Christian/Community Service (CSER) credit.
Are you passionate about God and country? Do you have a special heart for ministering to military men and women? Students Behind our Soldiers has openings for motivated students who want to fulfill more than just minimum requirements, to go above and beyond for our military. This sometimes requires a sacrifice of time to plan, organize and work events, but the rewards are great for those who give back to the community and country. A position with SBS will not only teach you critical job skills, such as leadership, organization, communication and problem solving, it will also build your résumé with extracurricular activities that apply to real work/life experience.
