One of only 71 living recipients of the Congressional Medal of Honor will be among the featured speakers for a Lessons in Leadership event from 10 a.m. to noon Thursday, Dec. 19, in Penn College’s Klump Academic Center Auditorium.  Retired Master Chief Edward C. Byers Jr., U.S. Navy Seal, was honored for “conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty” as a Hostage Rescue Force Team member in Afghanistan in December 2012.

He will be joined on the program by retired Army Maj. Gen. Karl Horst, president and chief executive officer of the Congressional Medal of Honor Foundation; and Greg Welteroth, founder of Welteroth Enterprises, whose civilian support of the foundation resulted in his induction into its Circle of Honor earlier this year. The nonprofit, in the midst of a $20 million capital campaign that coincides with its 20th anniversary, is partnering with Ameristrong in sponsoring the event.

While admission is free to the public, reservations are required by Dec. 16.
