Powell Lecture (13AUG19)
The Colin L. Powell Lecture for the CGSC class of 2020 was conducted at 9 a.m., Aug. 13, in the Eisenhower Auditorium of the Lewis and Clark Center. The speaker for this year's Powell Lecture was the second commander of U.S. Africa Command and the current president and CEO of the Association of the United States Army (AUSA), retired Gen. Carter F. Ham.

The Colin L. Powell Lecture Series was established by CGSC and the CGSC Foundation in 2008 in honor of the legacy of Gen. Powell at Fort Leavenworth. Powell, a former Secretary of State and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, graduated from the U.S. Army Command and General Staff College, served at Fort Leavenworth as a Brigadier General, and was the driving force behind the development of the Buffalo Soldier Monument that honors the service of the 9th and 10th Cavalry “Buffalo Soldiers.”

The intent of the Powell Lecture Series is to invite national and international distinguished personalities to provide lectures on contemporary issues to the faculty, student body, community and business leaders in the Eisenhower Auditorium of the Lewis and Clark Center, Fort Leavenworth, Kansas.

Lecturers in the series range from heads of state, heads of government, senior diplomats, and other distinguished persons who could bring their unique perspectives to help educate the audience about historical or contemporary issues of importance to the nation or the international community.

The lecture series is sponsored by the CGSC Foundation through an endowment from TriWest Healthcare Alliance.
