Charles Krauthammer to speak at University of the Cumberlands


WILLIAMSBURG, Ky.— University of the Cumberlands (UC) and the Forcht Group of Kentucky Center for Excellence in Leadership present “Ethical Leadership” featuring Charles Krauthammer. The event will be held in UC’s O. Wayne Rollins Center on Tuesday, April 9 at 7 p.m.

Charles Krauthammer has won a Pulitzer Prize and been named by Financial Times as the most influential commentator in America. He has been honored for his commentary from every side of the political spectrum. He has been described by MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough as “without a doubt the most powerful force in American conservatism.”

UC’s annual lecture series is made possible by an endowment from local business owners Dr. Terry and Mrs. Marion Forcht, who founded the Forcht Group of Kentucky Center for Excellence in Leadership in 2006. The purpose of the Center is to provide programs and activities that enhance the development of leadership, character and good citizenship. Past speakers in the series have included Roy Moore, Zell Miller, Stephen Covey, Ben Stein, Karl Rove, Mike Huckabee, and Rudy Giuliani.
