Following his military service, U.S. Navy Veteran Ron Leigh eventually ended up at Silver Star Apartments, a housing facility for homeless veterans located in Battle Creek, Michigan. In 2013, while attending Kellogg Community College, Ron studied art, and he created a recreational-based program for Silver Star as a volunteer with Zero-Day, a veteran service organization. The program focused on helping veterans develop positive friendships through music lessons, chess, and video games. Ron wanted to encourage other veterans to experience community without the aid of alcohol or drugs. After graduating from Siena Heights University with a notable 4.0 GPA, Ron works for the Haven as an outreach case manager, while he continues to create art, serve other veterans and the homeless community.
