Brigadier General Ural Glanville spoke Thursday to students at Morehouse College, encouraging them to use their skills to serve their communities and their country. In meetings with Morehouse’s Ronald E. McNair scholars, and ROTC cadets from Morehouse and its neighbors—Spelman and Clark Atlanta University—Brig. Gen. Glanville emphasized principles of leadership that are critical to every Soldier, while encouraging them to pursue public service. The audience primarily consisted of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) majors, and Brig. Gen. Glanville highlighted opportunities to apply those skills in the Army Reserve, emphasizing the unique role that the Army Reserve plays in supporting the Active force. Further, he reminded the students that public service is critical in both military service and civilian life.
Brig. Gen. Glanville is a model of this commitment in both his military and civilian careers. He has served as an officer in the Army Reserve for nearly 30 years while simultaneously building a career in law. In 2004, he was elected to the Fulton County Superior Court in Atlanta Georgia, and in 2012 he was deployed to Kabul, Afghanistan to serve in the Judge Advocate General’s Corps for the joint military force and NATO.
In highlighting leadership, Brig. Gen. Glanville reminded students and cadets to “take the leadership you learn in the Army and use it for the rest of your life.” He emphasized relationships—whether built in the military or civilian life—are critical for success throughout life. His experience, he said, demonstrated that the relationships cultivated over time create opportunities for personal and career advancement well into the future.But the most important relationships, he said, are those with they family and community. They are critical to success, and that’s why the Army Reserve is committed to helping its Soldiers keep them strong. “When we enlist or commission you,” he said, “we’re getting your family, your friends and your community as well.”
