Retired Gen. Wesley K. Clark, one of the nation’s most highly decorated military officers, will speak at Montana State University at 7:30 p.m. on Monday, March 5, in the Strand Union Building Ballrooms.
Clark, who retired as a four star general, served as the supreme allied commander and commander-in-chief, U.S. European command, from the summer of 1997 until the summer of 2000.
“A visionary leader, General Clark has a unique knowledge of globalization, international economics and politics making him a prime candidate to offer insights into the future of our nation,” said Carmen McSpadden, director of the MSU Leadership Institute, a key sponsor of the event.
McSpadden said Clark’s speech will be followed by a student panel question-and-answer session.
Clark graduated first in his class from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point in 1966 and was awarded a Rhodes Scholarship. He holds a master’s degree in philosophy, politics and economics from the University of Oxford. He also received a master’s in military science from the U.S. Command and General Staff College.
