Our cover story, “Hails from the Chiefs,” recounts the history of UMUC’s service to our nation’s military as told through letters of commendation from seven U.S. presidents. Included are images of the actual letters from Presidents Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, Nixon, Ford, Reagan, and Clinton.

Also in this issue is a profile of Post-Newsweek Media CEO and UMUC alumna Karen Acton, who makes the case for community newspapers. And UMUC alumnus Robert C. Moyer shares his passion for exploring the history of space flight—a passion that helped connect him with the father he never knew.

Finally, “Teachable Moments” offers a candid conversation with UMUC Acting President Javier Miyares on his unexpected call to leadership, lessons learned in a crisis, and his vision for UMUC.
