He was instrumental in securing a number of highly visible legislative efforts–from payday lending protections to education benefits–for veterans and their families. He was recognized as a leader in sustainability and has received a number of prestigious state, local, and federal awards for his efforts in ensuring the Navy was responsible and accountable to the environment and a diligent servant of those resources provided by the taxpayer.

Admiral Hering retired from the Navy in 2009 after more than 32 years of service. He now serves as the vice president for Business Services and Administration at the University of San Diego. Please join us for the important event.
