Senior NCO and Officer Panel in Kuwait.
CPT Samuel Arnett, CTC instructor in Kuwait, recently invited 8 senior leaders (officers and NCOs) to his Applied Management/Military Science class to discuss issues pertaining to Army Professionalism and Responsibility. The panel discussion was part of the course MTMS 1274, and allowed students to see and hear how senior Army leaders communicate and feel about important issues that impact the Army, as well as to gain insight and advice on being successful as a professional and how to conduct business.
Panel members and students were given the following topics for discussion:
- Success in the military profession:
- NCO/officer relationships:
- Where the Army is heading, where it's been (in your opinion):
- EO, SHARP, DADT Repeal, etc:
Students observed the discussion, took notes, and then had the chance to ask the members of the panel some follow up questions at the end of the event. Following the evening, students wrote a 1,500 essay on the discussion and what they learned from the forum.

CTC names new chancellor
- The Central Texas College (CTC) Board of Trustees recently announced Tom Klincar, D.A., president of John Wood Community College, has been selected as the school’s next chancellor. He will replace Dr. James Anderson when he retires early next year. The selection resulted from a nationwide search with subsequent review by a CTC committee consisting of faculty, staff and administrative personnel.
“Our search yielded 34 very qualified candidates,” noted Mari Meyer, chairperson of the CTC Board of Trustees. The Board then made the difficult decision of narrowing the list to three candidates and further narrowing to one finalist, Dr. Klincar.”
Meyer added, “Dr. Klincar has the perfect mix of work experience as the leader of a community college and involvement with the military. Those factors played a large part in our decision-making process.”
Dr. Klincar has served as the president and chief executive officer of John Wood Community College in Quincy, IL since 2008. Prior to that, he served as the commander of the College for Enlisted Professional Military Education headquartered at Maxwell-Gunter Air Force Base in Alabama with the rank of colonel. Dr. Klincar has also served as commandant of the Community College of the Air Force – Maxwell Air Force Base, dean of academics of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) School in Germany and chief of the Doctrine and Policy Division of the Headquarters Air Mobility Command at Scott Air Force Base in Illinois.
“I am absolutely thrilled,” said Dr. Klincar. “I have spent my entire adult life being close to the military. CTC is a leader in providing educational opportunities to the enlisted men and women of our military and I look forward to carrying that torch even further. And I look forward to being a part of the central Texas community.”
