An Award-Winning Professor

Professor Gregory E. Maggs with Kathy and Les Megyeri

Congratulations go to Professor Gregory E. Maggs, who graduated from the U.S. Army War College in Carlisle, Pa., in July after completing a demanding two-year course. Professor Maggs was honored at the graduation ceremony with a writing award for his outstanding paper “Cyber Attack: A Declared U.S. Cyber Defense Policy.”

“Learning about national security will help me both as a senior officer in the Army Reserve and as the co-director of the National Security Law LLM Program at GW,” says Professor Maggs, who joins the ranks of fellow War College alumni like Generals Dwight David Eisenhower, Omar Bradley, and Norman Schwarzkopf.

Among the attendees at the ceremony were Les Megyeri, JD ‘68, and his wife, Kathy. Mr. Megyeri graduated from the Army War College in 1986, so seeing Col. Maggs graduate had special meaning for him. “It is a great accomplishment, not only to graduate from the War College but to win the writing award,” Mr. Megyeri says. “I’m particularly proud of Col. Maggs.”
