Dean Evans and Secretary Clinton
Former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton received the inaugural In The Arena award on November 13, 2018 from the LBJ School of Public Affairs at The University of Texas at Austin, with support from the Lyndon Baines Johnson Foundation. The LBJ School established this award to honor an individual who has demonstrated — with purpose, perseverance, courage, integrity and empathy — commitment to public service for the greater good.
During a private evening ceremony in the Lady Bird Johnson Auditorium at UT, Clinton joined LBJ School Dean Angela Evans for a conversation before an audience of students, community leaders and special guests.
Clinton has spent four decades in public service, including as First Lady, U.S. Senator (D-NY), Secretary of State and the first female presidential candidate nominated by a major political party. She ran for president as a Democrat in 2016. She won the popular vote but lost the electoral vote to Donald Trump.
