U.S. TREASURER MARIN PRESENTS LIVINGSTON
HAMMOND -- United States Treasurer
Rosario Marin will present Southeastern Louisiana University's annual James
Livingston Memorial Lecture on Business Ethics at 7 p.m., April 3, in Southeastern’s
Vonnie Borden Theatre.
The lecture, co-sponsored by
the College of Business and Technology and Arts and Lectures Committee,
is free and open to the public. Attendees are encouraged to arrive early
as entrance will be restricted because of security after 7 p.m.
Marin has served as U.S. Treasurer
since August 2001. Her distinguished public service career has included
terms as mayor of Huntington Park, Calif., deputy director of the Governor’s
Office of Community Relations in Los Angeles, assistant deputy director
of the California State Department of Social Services, chair of the State
Council on Development Disabilities, and Chief of Legislative Affairs for
the Department of Development Services.
A native of Mexico, Marin came
to the United States when she was 14 years old. Although she initially
did not speak English, she graduated from high school with honors, then
went to work to help her family. Working full time and attending evening
classes, she earned a two-year degree from East Los Angeles Community College
and a bachelor’s degree from California State University. Marin later graduated
from Harvard University’s John F. Kennedy School of Government Program
for Senior Executives in State and Local Government.
Marin’s commitment to people
with disabilities has been recognized with numerous awards, such as the
prestigious Rose Fitzgerald Kennedy Prize at the United Nations in 1995.
She was the only elected official to receive the Excellence in Public Service
Award at the 2000 Latino Perspectives Conference in Sacramento. In the
February 2000 issue of the “Los Angeles Business Journal,” Marin was one
of two elected officials to be featured on the “20 Up and Coming Latinos”
list. She was also named one of the 100 most influential Hispanics by the
“Hispanic Business Magazine.”
The James Livingston Lecture
Series on Business Ethics was founded in 1984 by Hammond businessman John
O. Batson in memory of his long-time friend and associate James Livingston.
Vonnie Borden Theatre is
located in Southeastern’s D Vickers Hall. For further information, contact
