General Charles F. Bolden, Jr. to Serve as the 2019 Coast Guard Foundation Hedrick Fellow

Posted on March 26, 2019

Retired Marine Corps Major General Charles Frank Bolden, Jr. will visit the Coast Guard Academy on March 27 at the 2019 Coast Guard Foundation Hedrick Fellow.

The Coast Guard Foundation Hedrick Fellowship is a longstanding tradition of bringing world-renowned political, military and industry leaders to the Coast Guard Academy to share their wisdom with cadets.

The fellowship program was founded by an endowment from Frank E. and Harriet E. Hedrick in 1982 to bring influential Americans to the Academy in New London for the purpose of interacting with cadets and the faculty in both formal academic seminars as well as informal settings.

While at the Coast Guard Academy, General Bolden will participate in cadet-led academic seminars and attend a dinner in his honor. General Bolden will deliver the Coast Guard Foundation Hedrick Fellowship Address to the corps of cadets in the evening of the 27th.
