Congratulations to MG Paul Calvert -- the Army's newest two-star general and a 1988 alumnus! MG Calvert was honored during a promotion ceremony this week, during which he also became the commanding general of 1st Cavalry Division based at Fort Hood, Texas. We thank you for your service, sir.
In an article for the Fall 2014 edition of UNG Magazine, MG Calvert called his experiences at his alma mater "foundational" to his development as a leader:
“Interaction with peers, teachers and the local community, in and out of the classroom, were integral to the foundation. The opportunities I experienced enabled leadership, problem solving, teamwork and critical thinking skills,” Calvert said. "My experience at then-North Georgia College was and continues to be fundamental to my development as a leader. Investing in people, developing clear goals and objectives for teams and taking ownership of assigned missions are all seeds that were sown during my time at North Georgia.” #UNGleads #GoArmy #FortHood #FirstCavalry #military #leadership #seniormilitarycollege #ROTC #service
