  Cutchins Leadership Lecture Series: Lee Ellis  
(Corps)

Lee Ellis, an award-winning author and thought leader, will speak as the final event of the 2019-20 Cutchins Leadership Lecture Series of the Virginia Tech Corps of Cadets.

Ellis served in the U.S. Air Force as a F-4C Phantom pilot, flying 68 combat missions with 53 over North Vietnam. On Nov. 7, 1967, he was shot down, captured, and spent 5 1/2 years as a prisoner of war alongside the late Sen. John McCain.

His talk on Courageous Accountability: Leadership Lessons from the Hanoi Hilton will pull from two of his recent books: "Leading with Honor: Leadership Lessons from the Hanoi Hilton" and "Engage with Honor: Building a Culture of Courageous Accountability." Together, they share his POW experiences and the leadership principles that helped him and his compatriots resist, survive, and return with honor.

Elllis retired from the Air Force as a colonel in 1990 after 25 years of service.

Today, he is president and founder of Leading with Honor, a leadership and team development consulting and coaching company, and FreedomStar Media, a publishing company that provides leadership resources and training.

This lecture is free and open to the public. Ample seating is available behind the cadets.

The Cutchins Leadership Lecture Series is part of the cadet Corps Lab curriculum, housed in the Pamplin College of Business. The lecture series is named for the late Clifford A. Cutchins III, a former bank chairman and Virginia Tech Board of Visitors rector. A member of the Class of 1944, Cutchins received his degree in accounting as a member of the Corps of Cadets.
