The John Foley Experience comes to campus

Tuesday, September 13, 2016

On August 3rd, 2016, Fort Lewis College and community partners collaborated with John Foley, former lead solo pilot of the famous U.S. Navy flight demonstration squadron, the Blue Angels.

Foley is in great demand around the world as a leadership speaker. After hearing about the tragic passing of fellow Blue Angel and FLC alumnus Commander Jeff Kuss (Economics, ’06), John reached out to community members to raise money for a student scholarship dedicated to Jeff’s memory. The event raised nearly $15,000 for the Jeff Kuss Scholarship Fund. Fort Lewis College extends its thanks and respect to the Kuss Family, our Four Corners partners, and to John Foley and his team for their generosity and foresight.

A team from FLC and Durango spent more than two weeks in May constructing a water system and communal taps in Than Taung, Myanmar.

The Village Aid Project is an all-volunteer campus program, open to students in any major, that brings together students, faculty, and community professionals to improve the infrastructure in impoverished communities in Latin America and Asia. 

This spring's team included two faculty, three community partners, and eight FLC students, who travelled to the Shan State, in Myanmar. There they also conducted monitoring and evaluation in five communities where water systems were implemented in prior years, and assessed new communities for water implementation projects in the summer of 2019.
