Condoleezza Rice Addresses Attendees at Lions Clubs International Convention

On Friday July 8, we welcomed Condoleezza Rice to our International Convention in Seattle. Rice was the first African-American woman to serve as U.S. secretary of state. She is currently the Thomas and Barbara Stephenson Senior Fellow on Public Policy at the Hoover Institution and a professor at Stanford University in California.

    It’s a shame we can’t share in Ms. Rice address! I wonder why?

      Most keynote speakers don’t allow us to post text/video of their speech because they deliver the same address at numerous events.
