Gettysburg College Graduation to Highlight Leadership & Public Service

This Sunday, May 16, 2010 at 11:00 am, I will be attending the 175th Commencement Ceremony at Gettysburg College. I will be blogging about the event.  Why? Because this year, Gettysburg College will be bestowing an honorary Doctorate of Public Policy on our friend and colleague Robert Egger of the DC Central Kitchen in Washington DC.  Robert is the visionary leader behind the V3 Campaign and Campus Kitchen as well as many other projects. Read the College’s press release about Robert.

This year’s themes are leadership, social responsibility, improving the human condition, service to others, service learning, and combating hunger. Gettysburg College is a replication partner of Robert Egger’s Campus Kitchen. The College also is home to the Center for Public Service which connects students’ curricula to service. Students are encouraged to volunteer and become leaders in their communities. Watch a live video stream of the commencement exercise online.

I’ll be blogging about this issue all weekend. MUCH MORE TO FOLLOW….
