On April 21st, William Bennett '65 joined the Society remotely for an informal conversation spanning a range of topics. Bennett was previously the Secretary of Education in the Reagan administration, Director of the Office of National Drug Control Policy, and Chair of the National Endowment for the Humanities. He was also host of Morning in America, the nationally syndicated radio program, and has authored many books, including the New York Times bestseller, The Book of Virtues: A Treasury of Great Moral Stories.
In his remarks, Mr. Bennett reflected on his undergraduate studies at Williams, discussed his career in government service, and shared his views on current policy and social issues. Students were thankful for the chance to ask many questions.
The Society is deeply grateful to Mr. Bennett for his insights and his willingness to speak with students at his alma mater.
