Theodore Roosevelt and the Making of American Leadership - 2/18

Thursday, February 18, 2016 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Lakeridge High School alum Jon Knokey, while a graduate student at Harvard, unearthed hundreds of unpublished letters and interview notes from Roosevelt contempo­raries. In his recently published book, Theodore Roosevelt and the Making of American Leadership, Knokey tells the previously untold tale of Roosevelt’s journey to becoming a self-taught leader and how his uniquely American brand of leadership not only defined the 20th century but also changed the country forever. This program is co-sponsored by the Lake Oswego School District Foundation.

Jon Knokey is a former NCAA quarterback for Montana State University. He holds a Masters in Business Administration from Dartmouth College and a Masters in Public Administration from Harvard University.  Jon was a Vice President for a start-up software company before joining the MBA executive leadership programs at General Electric and then at John Deere. His career has focused on leadership and management at the intersection of business and government. Jon is married to Meghan Knokey and they have two young daughters, Avary and Quinn.  This is his first book.
