Former AG Ashcroft speaks at WCU scholarship dinner




HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - Former U.S. attorney general John Ashcroft spoke before a crowd of donors and several honored guests, mostly first responders, at the school's 7th scholarship dinner.

Ashcroft served as the 79th AG under the George W. Bush administration and later formed The Ashcroft Group.

"There's a special character of education in William Carey University," Ashcroft said. "It's a place where there isn't any part of the truth that is off-limits. So many of the public institutions have to ignore the spiritual side of individuals and the kind of need for a strong moral tone and virtue in our culture. I think as we look at the world we know the education of morals and virtue is needed now more than ever."
