Centre, Lincoln, and Leadership

In November 2010, Centre College announced that it would highlight its relationship to Abraham Lincoln in an exceptionally artful way: with a larger-than-life bronze statue of the president created by famed sculptor Ed Hamilton. An anonymous donor is making the project possible—one that Centre President John Roush has long hoped for.

President Roush has devoted much of his life to the study of Lincoln’s life and leadership, and in a four-part video series, “Centre, Lincoln, and Leadership,” he’s eager for viewers to share in his explorations. In part one of the series, President Roush introduces Lincoln as an American hero, focusing on his upbringing and the people in his life who influenced his approach to leadership. Stay tuned to Centre’s Facebook and YouTube for the rest of the series!
