Obama Nominates Another Grad For Post

President Obama has nominated Laura Kennedy '73 for the job of US ambassador to the Conference on Disarmament in Geneva.

Obama said that Kennedy will be an important addition "to our administration as we work to put our nation back on a path to prosperity and make our world more secure."

Kennedy has worked for the State Department since 1975. She is currently Deputy Commandant and a faculty member at the National War College. She received her BA in Asian Studies at Vassar.

Kennedy is the fourth Vassar graduate that Obama has nominated for a position. Not too shabby for a small school.
