Bossier Parish Community College is celebrating Month of the Military Child with an on-campus registration event dedicated to supporting military children.

Operation Purple will be held Wednesday, April 17, from 9am until 2pm in the Moran Room (Building H, first floor) on BPCC’s Bossier campus, located at 6220 East Texas Street. This event is organized in conjunction with Purple Up Day, a nationwide initiative recognizing the sacrifices and resilience of military-connected youth.

Operation Purple aims to provide a platform to honor and appreciate the unique experiences of children from military families. With an opportunity to register for upcoming semesters, the event seeks to foster a sense of community and support for these young individuals who often navigate challenges associated with military life.

Operation Purple is open to all military families in the Shreveport/Bossier City area. Attendees are encouraged to wear purple in solidarity with military children and their families.
