Katrina Commander's Challenge to Students: Solve Problems
The former commander of Joint Task Force Katrina told an audience at the University of West Georgia Tuesday night that young people should rise to the challenge of solving the world’s major problems with famine and poverty through their own ingenuity.
“Our responsibility as Americans is to be sure we leave this country better than we found it,” said Lt. Gen. Russel Honoré. “If you turn on the television, you would think that the sky’s falling in, when only 90 percent of Americans have jobs. I want to put things in perspective, I want you think about how hard it is to be an American.”
For the third installment of the Richard College of Business’ free enterprise lecture series, Honoré shared his knowledge of “Leadership and Preparedness in the 21st Century” at the UWG Coliseum
