MSU DISTINGUISHED SCHOLARS VISIT ATLANTA
The Stennis Center conducted a public service leadership program in Atlanta, Georgia for the 32 Mississippi State University Distinguished Scholars on Friday, March 9, 2012. It began with a tour of the Carter Presidential Library and Museum. Lunch featured former U.S. Senator Sam Nunn of Georgia who discussed his Nuclear Threat Initiative and recalled his relationship with Senator Stennis and Stacey Abrams, a Mississippi native and Truman Scholar who is now the Minority Leader in the Georgia House of Representatives. The program gave the students the opportunity to think about how they might be involved in providing public service leadership through their careers or through volunteer efforts.
