The CGSC Foundation has selected Col. Scott A. Green, director of the Command and General Staff School (CGSS), as the Person of the Month for July 2019.
Green recently assumed duty as the CGSS director after serving as the director of the CGSC Department of Army Tactics (DTAC) since July 2018.
“The Foundation has a great deal of appreciation for the school director position,” said Foundation President/CEO Rod Cox. “Most of the programs we support go through the director’s office in some way and having a great working relationship is key. I came to know Col. Green when he was the DTAC director and worked with him on several VIP visits, to include a visit from the Kansas City Chiefs Ambassadors. The Foundation looks forward to a great working relationship with Col. Green and the CGSS staff in support of the CGSS students and their families.”
