Gen (Ret) Lorenz Visits The Prep School
Recently the Prep School Cadet Candidates as well as the Prep Staff had the honor of a visit by Gen. (Ret) Stephen Lorenz. In class the C/C's read one of his books "Lorenz on Leadership". This visit gave them a chance to discuss several leadership principles as well as other questions they had with him.
General (Ret) Lorenz graduated from the U.S. Air Force Academy in 1973, and then attended undergraduate pilot training at Craig AFB, Ala. He has commanded at every level, including an air refueling wing that won the 1994 Riverside Trophy for Best Wing in 15th Air Force, and an air mobility wing that won the 1995 Armstrong Trophy for Best Wing in 21st Air Force. He commanded the training wing at the U.S. Air Force Academy as the Commandant of Cadets from 1996 to 1999. He also served as the Deputy Assistant Secretary for Budget, Office of the Assistant Secretary of the Air Force for Financial Management and Comptroller, Headquarters U.S. Air Force, Washington, D.C. By the time he retired from the AF he had 3,600 flying hours in 10 different aircrafts.
Gen Lorenz shared several videos during his discussion on leadership, in particular on motivating and inspiring someone we caught a glimpse the clip below highlighting these things. If you haven't seen this film, this short scene just might make you. The clip is from "Facing the Giants."
After Gen (Ret) Lorenz spoke to the room about Leadership, the C/C's were given the opportunity to ask him questions. Then, C/C Bollinger presented him with a Prep tshirt with "Preppies for Life" on the back - on behalf of the 2017 Prep Class.
Gen (Ret) Lorenz even took the time afterwards to speak one on one with the C/C's and sign their copy of his book.
