The US Navy’s aircraft carrier USS John C. Stennis (CVN 74) hosted Rear Adm. Annie B. Andrews, commander, Navy Recruiting Command (NRC), and nine university senior administrators and academics on April 28-29 off the coast of San Diego as part of NRC’s Educators to Sea (ETS) Distinguished Visitors (DV) program.
Participants in the ETS program are chosen from a select group of state and local Department of Education superintendents, Executive Program directors, school board members, high school principals, teachers, counselors, coaches and professors.
The DV embark provides opportunities to each participant to view the Navy in action through direct interaction with Sailors and gives a demonstration of the unique capabilities of Naval aviation.
Other participants in the embark were Helen J. Streubert, president of College of Saint Elizabeth; Glenda Baskin Glover, president of Tennessee State University; Dottie King, president of Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College, Indiana; Karen Riley, dean of Morgridge College of Education at the University of Denver, Colorado; Gwendolyn Wilson Diggs, assistant superintendent of educational operations at Ferguson-Florissant School District, Missouri, and previous Department of Defense school teacher; and Christine Heinrichs, contributing editor at Diversity in Action.
