Washburn University kicked off its homecoming week with a very special visitor Thursday. Retired Navy Captain William Marshall, of Colorado Springs, was at the university Thursday for a breakfast lecture presenting the "Challenger Learning Centers" program.
Marshall is a Vietnam veteran and has served 33 years as an intelligence officer working on national satellite systems. Captain Marshall says the program is meant to encourage today's student's to get involved in Math, Science and technology.
It gives students the opportunity to succeed and have fun at the same time. Marshall says even the smallest difference counts. There are 52 Challenger programs around the world.
