Gordon Sherman, an AU College of Education alumnus and its second Keystone Leader-in-Residence, will spend the day with students, faculty and staff on April 20. Sherman, a 1957 graduate, will present an open lecture about his concept of leadership, his experiences and his perspective on the value of an education degree from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m., 3410D Learning Resources Center, Haley Center.
Sherman retired from a career in public service in January 1999, after more than 43 years of combined military and civilian service. For more than 23 years, he served as commissioner of the Social Security Administration's eight-state Southeast Region. In this role, he was responsible for the supervision, coordination, executive leadership, and effective and efficient administration of the Social Security program.
He is now a principal of Lamon & Sherman Consulting, LLC, an investment and income-replacement consulting firm based in Atlanta, Ga. He is a fellow of the National Academy of Public Administration and chairman of the board for the Lenbrook Square Foundation, Inc.
Sherman serves his alma mater through membership on the Auburn University Foundation Board and Public Administration Program Advisory Council. An endowed lecture series in the Public Administration Program also bears his name.
The College of Education established the Keystone Leader-in-Residence program to introduce its students to proven leaders in the fields of education, human services, health services, community services and government. Keystone Leaders spend a day on the Auburn campus sharing their perspectives of current happenings in their respective fields.
The Keystone Leader-in-Residence Program was created in conjunction with the college's new logo — the keystone — as an exciting way to demonstrate first-hand the ways in which education connects, strengthens and supports us all.
