Winning Speech, New Book, New Job: Buckley Friends Making News

Alumni , Seen|Read|Heard , The Buckley Experience

Whenever we see good news about Buckley alum, we’re excited to pass it on. And we know our Buckley alumni enjoy keeping up with each other, too. Here are a few  things that have made their way recently to The Buckley School inbox. 

We're happy for Greg Lukianoff, who has a new book AND a new baby!

Congratulations go out to Executive Seminar alum Greg Lukianoff for his new book The Coddling of the American Mind: How Good Intentions and Bad Ideas Are Setting Up a Generation for Failure and on the birth of son Maxwell. (We trust Baby Max is getting plenty of coddling yet will not fall victim to good intentions and bad ideas.)

Greg is an attorney and president of campus free speech organization, FIRE (Foundation for Individual Rights in Education).  

Tommy Lentz at the lectern, making his Buckley School coaches proud.

Tommy Lentz, a Buckley School grad, has put his public speaking talents to excellent use. He was recently named the spokesperson for credit unions in North and South Carolina, making his Buckley School coaches quite proud.

Tommy won the CUaware Protege competition that was judged in large part on presentation skills. Tommy is contact center manager for Greenville Federal Credit Union and will serve as spokesperson for one year.

Rebecca Vance, who led many development projects for the City of Cayce (including expansion of the popular river walk), is taking her talents to new places.

We also congratulate Dorchester County, S.C. for adding a super person to their staff. Executive Seminar grad Rebecca Vance is now their deputy county administrator.

In her seven years as city manager for the City of Cayce, Rebecca led community and economic development projects, including expansion of the Cayce Riverwalk, a popular outdoor destination in Columbia, S.C. metropolitan area.
