The annual Patrick Henry Public Service Awards banquet has been traditionally a highlight of the year for the Wilson Center, a time to recognize accomplishments of both alumni in public service and the seniors of the Public Service Certificate Program. On April 21, 2006, the annual banquet was also the time to recognize seniors in the Military Leadership/National Security Studies Certificate Program.
The program, initiated in 2005, has been under the direction of Dr. James Simms. The 2006 banquet was indeed a celebration of the first group of outstanding young men to complete the Military Leadership/National Securitiy Studies Certificate Program. Hampden-Sydney College has every right to be proud of the accomplishments of these three gentlemen, and to look forward to hearing of their continued successes! Dr. James Simms, President Walter M. Bortz III and Dr. David E. Marion flank Christian P. Basel (left photo) and Zachary T. Wasmer (right photo), who each received certificates of completion in 2006.
