Constitution Day Event: Senator Johnny Isakson on Foreign Policy

In observance of national Constitution Day, Oglethorpe University welcomes Senator Johnny Isakson (GA-R), who will discuss the topic of foreign policy. This event also celebrates the opening of the exhibition, the James and Camilla Comerford Collection: Political Memorabilia (1933-2012).

Johnny Isakson is a successful businessman with 40-plus years in the real estate industry who has built a respected record of public service to Georgia. He is the first Georgian since the 1800s to have served in the state House, state Senate, U.S. House of Representatives and U.S. Senate. He also served Georgia as chairman of the Georgia Board of Education. Johnny is serving his second term in the U.S. Senate, and is the only Republican in the Senate chairing two committees — the Senate Ethics Committee and the Senate Veterans’ Affairs Committee. He also serves on the Senate HELP Committee, Senate Finance Committee, and the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Johnny and his wife, Dianne, have been married since 1968. They have three grown children and nine grandchildren.

This event is free and open to the public.
