May 20: Hood faculty member appointed to foundation board

Wednesday, May 20, 2015

FREDERICK, Md.—A foundation grounded in preserving the legacy of a former Army chief of staff recently named a Hood College faculty member to its board of trustees.

David Hein, Ph.D., professor of religion and philosophy at Hood College, was elected to the George C. Marshall Foundation’s board for his enthusiastic support of the foundation’s mission.

The Marshall Foundation, located in Lexington, Va., preserves, protects and promotes the example of Marshall—an Army chief of staff during WWII, secretary of state, secretary of defense and architect of the Marshall Plan for post-war economic recovery—who died in 1959.

Through educational programs, online presence and facilities that include a museum, research library and archives, the foundation keeps alive the principles of honesty, integrity and selfless service that motivated Marshall.

Hein has taught Hood courses in religion, philosophy, literature and history for more than 30 years, and he has published 10 books and more than 40 articles in professional journals, including “In War for Peace: General George C. Marshall’s Core Convictions and Ethical Leadership,” which appeared in Touchstone in 2013.
