U.S. Public Service Academy founder to lecture at College
February 5, 2008
The Office of Student Volunteer Services will be hosting former Teach For America corps member Chris Myers Asch today at 7 p.m. in the University Center Tidewater B.
p. Asch and fellow corps member Shawn Raymond were recently noted in the September issue of Time magazine for the proposed establishment of a federal academy to train students for a life in public service. The U.S. Public Service Academy is pending approval from Congress on legislation that has been endorsed by Sens. Hillary Clinton (D-N.Y.) and Arlen Specter (R-Penn).
p. The legislation, if passed, would allocate $164 million per year in federal funds for the founding of the 5,000-student academy.
