New Sec. of State Kerry to speak at U.Va.

Visit will be Kerry's first public speech since joining Obama's cabinet


New Secretary of State John Kerry will speak next Wednesday, Feb. 20 at the University, marking the first public speech he will give since joining Pres. Barack Obama’s cabinet Feb. 1.

According to a State Department press release, Kerry “will discuss how a relatively small investment in our foreign policy and diplomatic efforts results in a big return for America’s economy and security.”

Kerry’s visit to Grounds will come days before he leaves on his first overseas trip as secretary of state.

The speech will be held at 11 a.m in Old Cabell Hall.

This is a developing story.
