Peter Beinart, former editor of The New Republic, an American columnist and journalist,
visited in 2012.
Major MJ Hegar
filed – and won – a landmark lawsuit against the Department of Defense that paved
the way for women in combat. Before this, on a tour in Afghanistan, the Medevac helicopter
she piloted was shot down, forcing her to take action that helped save lives and earned
her historic recognition. She speaks on leadership, being the catalyst for change,
and thriving under pressure. She is a member of Foreign Policy
’s 100 Leading Global Thinkers for 2013 and has a new book on her life coming out
in the next month.
Major MJ Hegar's presentation will be one hour followed by dialogue with the audience
and a sale and signing of her new book.
The Delta College President's Speaker Series is funded by the President's office and
