On Thursday, February 7th, the Foreign Policy Classroom program was honored to welcome Secretary of State John Kerry, who dropped by the Classroom as a surprise guest. Secretary Kerry’s remarks touched upon the important role that diplomacy has played and continues to play in advancing America’s interests in an increasingly complex world. He also urged students to become global citizens and learn about the difficult situations and problems facing the United States and its allies, in order for them to be able to contribute in solving those issues. A full transcript of Secretary Kerry’s remarks at the Foreign Policy Classroom are available online.

In addition to Secretary Kerry, the program also featured Marc Norman from the Bureau of Counterterrorism, who spoke to students on “U.S. Counterterrorism Efforts.” Approximately 160 students were in attendance from a variety of schools, including American University, Johns Hopkins and Kent State University. The program also included Jon Tollestrup, a Public Affairs Officer in the Bureau of Public Affairs, who welcomed students to the Classroom and introduced Marc Norman.
