We are honored to have our distinguished Historical League member, 2008 Historymaker, Ambassador Barbara Barrett as our speaker.   Barbara is an international business and aviation attorney, businesswoman, diplomat, and rancher.  She earned her bachelor's, master's and law degrees at Arizona State University, as well as honorary doctorate degrees from ASU, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, Thunderbird School of Global Management, University of South Carolina, Pepperdine University, and Finlandia University.  She has trained as an astronaut, and was a backup spaceflight participant for the Soyuz TMA-16 flight to the International Space Station.  In 2008 and 2009, Barbara was U.S. Ambassador to Finland.  She and her husband Craig own the Triple Creek Ranch in Montana, which was named by Travel + Leisure magazine as one of the best hotels in the world for 2014.  And, this is only a small part of her illustrious resume.  We encourage you to wear a fancy fashionable hat to fit in with our Kentucky Derby decorating theme.  Social hour starts at 10:00 am, speaker at 11:00 am, followed by lunch, Annual Meeting, and Volunteer Recognition Program.
