Hauenstein Herald: Virtual Semester Edition
Direct From the Director
A message opening our newsletter from our Acting Director Brent Holmes as he reflects on the last semester and the exciting future of the Hauenstein Center.
"Happy New Year! Twenty twenty was an extremely unusual year for all of us. As we engage in the development of ethical, effective leaders, we are reminded that many of the challenges facing our communities, nation, and the world are as much leadership challenges as they are medical ones. We are grateful for the opportunity to have an impact on the development of our future leaders. In reaching the midway point of the academic calendar, I am pleased to report the Hauenstein Center for Presidential Studies continues to press forward with dynamic and engaging programming amid our unusual times."
Fall 2020 Semester in Review
The Hauenstein Center for Presidential Studies has remained flexible throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, offering virtual Common Ground Initiative and Wheelhouse Talk programs to our community. If you’ve missed any events, you can find them on our YouTube page at our YouTube page. What follows is the fall 2020 semester in review.
Peter C. Cook Leadership Academy Spotlight
Finally, we will conclude with our Peter C. Cook Leadership Academy fellow candidate and alumni spotlight. This spotlight will showcase two of our incredible Peter C. Cook Leadership Academy (CLA) fellows. DeMario Bell’s leadership shines through as he stands in “the gap” of opportunity and Christa Fernando’s diverse exposures and experiences have helped form her outlook on effective leadership and service.
Drawing inspiration from Ralph's time with the Grand Rapids Herald, we are pleased to present the Hauenstein Center's newsletter which will feature past events and lectures, current events at the center, and feature the Cook Leadership Academy fellows and Alumni.
