Buffington speaks to Rotary about work at Stennis Center

April 29, 2014

Before he became executive director of the Stennis Center for Public Service, Rex Buffington worked for its namesake, the late U.S. Sen. John C. Stennis.

Buffington said he had grown up enjoying writing speeches, even writing speeches in high school for two classmates who were running against each other for student body president. So he said it was a dream come true to write speeches for Stennis as part of his job, except for one problem: Stennis was one of the most unscripted senators in Washington. So one day, Buffington spoke with Stennis about the gap between the speeches he wrote and what Stennis actually said.
