Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos stopped at the University of Kansas on his way to the UN General Assembly in New York. Santos graduated from KU in 1973. After holding several government posts in Colombia, he was elected president in 2010. During his stop in Lawrence, he was awarded the highest honor given by the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences. He made a public presentation, speaking about the impact his time in Lawrence had on him. He also discussed some of the critical issues facing his country. KPR's Stephen Koranda was at yesterday's (MON) speech and has this report.
