Hampden-Sydney College Dedication of Wilson Center - Farmville Virginia Events
488 College Road
Wednesday August 31, 2011
The Wilson Center for Leadership in the Public Interest will be holding its dedication ceremony on Wednesday August 31 at 4 PM. The Wilson Center has recently undergone a face-lift and the building is beautiful. The Wilson Center's mission is to prepare "men of character for lives of consequence".
The Wilson Center is named in honor Lieutenant General Samuel Vaughn Wilson-U. S. Army retired. General Sam is a friend and a neighbor and his dedication to the men of Hampden-Sydney is evident through his works. General Wilson was the 22nd President of Hampden-Sydney College and served from 1992 to 2000. Upon retirement from his presidency the Leadership Center which he helped found was named in his honor.
General Wilson has led a very active military life with 37 years of duty and is a highly-decorated combat veteran of World War II. The opportunity to meet a man like General Wilson is not an every day event. Hampden-Sydney College and the men of Hampden-Sydney College are fortunate to have General Sam Wilson as a leader and a giver.
