Colombia’s past president to speak Feb. 4 at SJU
The 13th Annual Eugene J. McCarthy Lecture is at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 4, in the Stephen B. Humphrey Theater at St. John’s University. This year’s keynote is Juan Manuel Santos, a two-term president of Colombia (2010-2018). President Santos ushered in a new era of prosperity and peace in Colombia and his success was widely recognized.
In 2016, President Santos was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize “for his resolute efforts to bring the country’s more than 50-year-long civil war to an end.” Santos has also been twice-named to TIME’s “100 Most Influential People” and was honored with the World Economic Forum’s Global Statesman Award.
