A native of Northwest Arkansas, Colonel (Ret) Greg Barrack graduated as a Distinguished Military Student and number one in his class at New Mexico Military Institute and as a Distinguished Military Graduate from Texas A&M, where he was commissioned as a Regular Army Officer in the Infantry. After 33 years of military service, Greg was selected in 2014 to become the Senior Army Instructor of JROTC at Tulsa Memorial High School, a program consisting of 100+ student cadets.
In a day when the instilling of values in young people is too often left to Hollywood, with predictable and lamentable results, Greg and his Command Sergeant Major colleague have created and are executing an aggressive character-building agenda. Although pitted against a powerful cultural current, this program, which emphasizes values such as courage, honesty and responsibility, is affecting positive change in the cadets and throughout the MHS student body.
In his Forum presentation Greg will overview Memorial’s character development program, one intended to yield better citizens and valued members of our labor market. Q&A will follow. You can expect to be encouraged and inspired by what you hear and to receive takeaways for both personal and professional application
