ASU Honors Student Going to Naval Conference

March 12, 2012

Angelo State University political science major Preston Wimberly has been chosen to attend the 2012 U.S. Naval Academy Foreign Affairs Conference April 10-12 in Annapolis, Md.

The theme of this year’s conference is “Eclipse of the West?.”  Each year, select universities are invited to nominate an outstanding undergraduate student to attend the conference to mingle with Navy cadets, discuss significant contemporary issues, share potential solutions to modern dilemmas and hear distinguished diplomatic and political speakers.  This is the fourth straight year that ASU has been invited to nominate a student. 

A sophomore from Richardson, Wimberly is a member of the ASU Honors Program.  He will join 149 other students from across the U.S. and a dozen other countries at the conference for three days of seminars and discussions.  In preparation, he will write a research paper to be presented at the conference in a roundtable discussion on “Political Architecture: The Future Shape of Global Power Structures.” 

Keynote speakers at the conference will be U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and Jon Huntsman, former U.S. Ambassador to China.
