Former U.S. NATO Ambassador and Texas Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison will deliver this year’s Elizabeth D. Rockwell Distinguished Lecture on Ethics and Leadership for the University of Houston Hobby School of Public Affairs on Tuesday, Sept. 13 at 6 p.m.
The moderated discussion will explore Hutchison’s decades of public service and trailblazing political career. The former diplomat and foreign policy and defense expert will share her experience representing the nation in the diplomatic alliance of the western world.
Hutchison is an accomplished public servant who has held various roles from bank executive to Texas state representative, Texas state treasurer, U.S. Senator and, most recently, U.S. Ambassador to NATO.
