    The third episode of season 3 features retired Air Force General Richard B. Myers, SAE alumnus and President of Kansas State University. Foundation CEO Steve Mitchell interviewed President Myers over Zoom earlier this year. President Myers grew up just outside of Kansas City, Kansas, and studied mechanical engineering at Kansas State University. He is a member from the Kansas Beta chapter and enlisted in the U.S. Air Force shortly after graduating. Throughout his 40 year military career, President Myers had many assignments, most notably Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff under President Bill Clinton and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff under President George W. Bush. As someone who had no interest in joining the armed forces when he started college and then worked his way up to be the highest-ranking member in the U.S. military, President Myers has an interesting perspective on what it takes to succeed.

    Tune in today for this episode, which focuses on the importance of excelling in your current role, whether that be student, professional, volunteer, or otherwise, to be successful in the future. President Myers says, “We can tell you what it’s going to take to be successful tomorrow, and that’s to be the best at what you’re doing today.” Additionally, President Myers discusses following the guidance of the True Gentlemen, self-reflection, working to improve each day, and taking responsibility for mistakes you’ve made.

Great way to connect brothers young and old

Now that I’ve listened to the first five podcast episodes, I wanted to leave a review. This has been a really great product that the service center is putting out, it’s a great way for young Chapter brothers to learn about ways they can improve their chapters. Also great for Alumni like myself to see what’s going on in the world of SAE.
