Sword & Spoon Group Chairman and CEO John Kingston recently had the privilege of discussing career and life success with a group of impressive college students from around the country. John and good friend Pastor Hurmon Hamilton addressed students from the American Enterprise Institute’s (AEI) Values and Capitalism Summer Honors Program as well as the Institute for Responsible Citizenship, a program for highly talented African American students.
AEI’s Values and Capitalism Summer Honors Program selects about 50 top-performing Christian students from 33 different colleges and universities. They study with AEI scholars and other values and capitalism-affiliated professors. The students can choose to concentrate on the morality of democratic capitalism, or anti-poverty policy.
