Gen (Ret) Lorenz Visits the Prep School

The Prep Cadet Candidates as well as the Prep Staff had the honor of a visit by Ret. Gen. Stephen Lorenz. Recently the C/C's read one of his book "Lorenz on Leadership". This visit gave them a chance to discuss several leadership principles as well as other questions they had with him.

Their reading assignments/topics in preparation for his visit were:
- Lorenz on Leadership Part II, Pages 11-18
- Never, Ever give Up, Pages 53-58
- Doing the Right Thing, Pages 79-80
- Today's Airman, Pages 93-95
- Service to Others, Pages 103-104
- Motivation, Pages 127-128

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.

After Gen (Ret) Lorenz took the floor and talked about Leadership, the C/C's were given the opportunity to ask him questions. At the end, C/C Kennis and C/C Brown presented him with a Prep School Dress Polo shirt on behalf of the 2016 Prep Class. As it turns out, during a visit of his last year with the C/C's from the class of 2015 mistakenly thought he had also graduated from the Prep School before attending the Academy and when they found out he didn't, the Commander Col Szybist made him an Honorary 2015 Prep School Grad with their 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.
