Missouri’s Senior U.S. Senator is praising former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright, who has died from cancer at the age of 84.
Roy Blunt says Albright broke barriers and made a difference.
After serving as Secretary of State, Blunt says Albright continued to be an important voice in our foreign policy discussions.
Albright has ties to Missouri.
She worked at the Rolla Daily News back in 1959 while her husband was stationed at Fort Leonard Wood.
Here’s the full statement from Senator Blunt:
|“Secretary Albright broke barriers and made a difference. After serving as Secretary of State, she continued to be an important voice in our foreign policy discussions. Only a couple of years ago, I was able to see how much she was respected by her former foreign minister colleagues when I spoke to them at a meeting they had at the Truman Library in Kansas City. She was incredibly involved in the Truman Scholarship Program and that sometimes led to a discussion of her working at the Rolla Daily News when her husband was stationed at Fort Leonard Wood. I’m grateful to have had the opportunity to hear her insight and perspective over the years.”
