Bush, Schwarzkopf Live Via Satellite at ACU

for immediate release Aug. 14, 1997

Former President George Bush and Gen. Norman Schwarzkopf will speak live via satellite in the PBS Leadership Series sponsored locally by Abilene Christian University's Professional Development Office.

"Satellite learning programs of this caliber are a tremendous opportunity for our community," said Elaine Tate, ACU's coordinator of professional development and training. "These programs are relatively inexpensive, but that in no way reflects the quality of the presentations. We could not spend two hours each with President Bush or General Schwarzkopf in Abilene for $75 without satellite technology."

Bush will be featured Wednesday, Aug. 27, from 2-4 p.m. and Schwarzkopf will be featured Thursday, Oct. 16, from 2-4 p.m. in the Hilton Room of the McGlothlin Campus Center

Bush will define vision and its role in leadership, discuss cause-and-effect thinking, make recommendations to maneuver through change, and explore how to communicate vision to accomplish a mutual goal.

Schwarzkopf will define endurance and its role in leadership, discuss how endurance promotes people's abilities, and make recommendations on how to use teams and grow partnerships to promote winning attitudes.

After one-hour speeches by each leader, the events will then feature a live, one-hour, question-and-answer session with participants around the world including Abilene.

Cost is $75 per session or $100 for both sessions. Refreshments will be served. Call Elaine Tate at 674-2903 or e-mail tatee@nicanor.acu.edu to register.

There is no limit on the number of people who may attend. If more people register than can fit in the Hilton Room, an additional location will be linked to the satellite feed.
