Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Former and current staff from the peace corps, and from USA ID and from some former ambassadors as well. And to some degree. That's what the peace corps has done. It has sort of given a start to many of us who wanted to do something contribute to US foreign policy in a fundamentally different way to contribute on the ground to the way that people see the United States until the we can contribute to their development at the same time. I also want to note that this event today on the future of the peace corps is taking place appropriately on the seventh seventieth anniversary of the Universal Declaration of human rights. The core. Values of the peace corps, relate directly to the belief in the right of every human being to achieve his or her full potential regardless of race, religion or nationality. Volunteers convey those values during their service and hopefully during the rest of their lives as well. When president Kennedy signed the executive order in one thousand nine hundred sixty one that formally established the peace corps, he said, and I quote, we have in this country and immense reservoir of men and women anxious to sacrifice their energies and time and toil to the cause of world peace and human progress. Jodi Olson was one of those who answered serving first as a volunteer in Tunisia from nineteen sixty six nine hundred sixty eight the same years that my wife, and I served. My wife is right here. Served in Salvador as a peace, corps, volunteer. And Jodi never stop spending. The next five decades. She's done it all peace corps, country director in Togo regional director for Africa and the Middle East chief-of-staff to then director, Paul Coverdell deputy director, and then acting director and now director, she's the most prepared director that the peace corps has ever had going back to the founder and the first director Sergey driver prior to returning to the peace corps in two thousand eighteen Dr Olsen was visiting professor at the university of Maryland Baltimore school of social work and director of the university center for global education. She also oversaw health research projects in Malawi while teaching courses and international social work. And even while she was not a peace corps official. Those rare years I can attest that she always was available to all peace corps, directors as a mentor and advisor and support and a source of ideas. Jody.
