Madeleine Albright, Secretary of State in the Clinton Administration, is giving a speech at Eisenhower Auditorium tomorrow night at 8.
Appointed in 1997 as the first female Secretary of State, Albright was the highest-ranking woman in the history of the U.S. government at that time. During her tenure she extended and modernized NATO and inspired NATO’s successful campaign to reverse ethnic cleansing in Kosovo; promoted peace in the Balkans; reduced the nuclear threat from Russia; strengthened democracy in Europe, Africa, Asia and Latin America; skillfully managed the multifaceted relationship with China and successfully concluded hundreds of other agreements that facilitated American business overseas.
The event is part of SPA’s Distinguished Speaker Series. Other speakers this year have included Bob Knight and Frank Abagnale. For those interested in US Foreign Policy, this is a must-see event. Tickets are free, and if there are any left, they can be picked up at Eisenhower Aud., the HUB, or the BJC.
