Pres. Herzberger says: President Nixon’s legacy at Whittier

One hundred years ago today, Richard M. Nixon was born.  His birthday is being celebrated in Washington and through news accounts, such as this one in our local paper:  http://www.whittierdailynews.com/news/ci_22335641/president-richard-nixon-still-reviled-revered-100-years.  We on campus celebrate our most famous alumnus in a number of ways, but most significantly through our annual Richard M. Nixon Fellowship competition, awarding talented students a stipend to undertake an internship or a research project anywhere in the world.  I can think of no better way to continue the President’s legacy than to inspire young people to explore careers in public service.
