Taylor Porter was proud to host officers from the U.S. Army War College Eisenhower Lecture Series to attend a series of meet-and-greet and lecture events in the Baton Rouge community as part of an academic outreach program.
The program encourages dialogue on national security matters and other public policy issues between students at the Army’s senior educational institution and public at colleges and universities throughout the United States.
This year, topics included: “The South China Sea – Why it Matters”; “Leadership”; and “Military Women Leading Workforce Equality.” The U.S. Army War College, located in Carlisle Barracks, Penn, represents the highest level of education offered by the military services.
The Eisenhower Series College Program was established in 1969.
High-ranking officers from the college attended events such as: meeting with Louisiana Gov. John Bel Edwards, LSU Law Center Dean Tom Galligan, LSU football head coach Ed Orgeron, and touring LSU’s Operations building and football stadium; being introduced on the House Floor by Rep. Franklin Foil; speaking to an LSU undergraduate course on U.S. National Security, and to the LSU ROTC; speaking to high school students at Episcopal, Catholic, and Runnels; doing interviews with several Baton Rouge TV and radio stations; attending the LSU vs. Tennessee baseball game; and attending a dinner hosted by Taylor Porter Partner Mike Walsh.
Taylor Porter Managing Partner Skip Philips works every year with the Eisenhower Series College Program to organize events for officers to attend in the community. Philips is a retired major general in the U.S. Army Reserve, and is the Army Reserve Ambassador for Louisiana.
