What if everyone left the world a little better than they found it? This course will give us the opportunity to examine historical examples of people who left the world better than they found it through vision, leadership and social change. We will also look for examples closer to home - at ASU and the Boone community. Finally, we will begin the process of asking ourselves the question:  What will be our legacy? What might our contribution be to Appalachian?

I have worked with leadership development and leadership education at ASU for 23 years.  Over the years I have helped students get involved on campus and worked closely with student clubs and organizations.  Now my work is primarily in the classroom - helping students understand what leadership is all about.  I love traveling near and far with my wife Jenny.  I love spending time with my grown kids when they make it back to Boone.  I love Boone and all the beauty to be found on a trail or a mountain top.  I believe the High Country to be one of the most beautiful places on earth.
