Madeleine Albright at Marlborough School
The former Secretary of State participated in an engaging and inspirational Q&A with five members of the Senior Class.
On April 16, we had the amazing honor and thrill of welcoming former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright to Marlborough. Secretary Albright served as the country’s first female Secretary of State from January 1997 to January 2001—at that time the highest-ranking woman in the history of the U.S. government. She is the recipient of many honors, not the least of which is the Presidential Medal of Freedom. In addition to work in the private sector, Secretary Albright serves as a professor of international relations at Georgetown University, and has authored five New York Times bestsellers.
During her visit to the School, Secretary Albright took the stage in Caswell Hall with five members of our Senior Class, and addressed their questions on topics including the influence of women on politics, negotiating strategies, and humanitarian intervention. Her insightful words touched upon many of the themes that we focus on here at Marlborough and strive to inspire in our students, including our Core Values of Community, Excellence, Confidence, and Honor.
