As college students get ready to begin classes over the coming weeks, Kallie Inman is gearing up for year two of an innovative Sunset resident engagement program. Kallie, Life Enrichment Assistant at Sunset Village, developed the program in 2017 as a way to connect veterans living at Sunset with ROTC students in universities around the country.
