On September 17, 2012 Dr. Howard visited Fort Worth Country Day School in Fort Worth, Texas, and delivered the keynote address at the Captain David R. "Chip" Herr Jr. Memorial Lecture.
Captain Herr, an alumnus of FWCD and Washington and Lee, served in the Marine and in 1992 was killed in a helicopter accident while deployed in Saudi Arabia in support of Operation Desert Shield.
Dr. Howard met with upper school students during the day and later spoke about his time as a helicopter pilot and shared his "8 Ways to Accelerate Your Leadership Odyssey." Joining Dr. Howard was Mac Hazel, Assistant Dean of Admissions, whose territory includes Texas.
