LSA students attend World Affairs Council

Twelve LSA students accompanied Mr. Archie Buchman and Ms. Renee Kahre to attend an evening with Former Senator George Mitchell sponsored by the World Affairs Council. Former Senator Mitchell shared memories of his life and experiences not only as a child of immigrants, but of his service as the former Majority Leader of the Senate. Mr. Mitchell’s contributions to the field of peace negotiations are extensive, serving a lead role in brokering the Northern Ireland Peace accords and most recently in Middle Eastern negotiations. During the evening, Senator Mitchell addressed topics ranging from Supreme Court decisions, election financing, immigration, and legislative reform. Our students had an opportunity to meet briefly and share a photo with Senator Mitchell and he shared that he felt right at home with our students, as he is a father of both a freshman and senior.
