U. S. Senator Kennedy featured speaker at Millsaps College

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

John Kennedy, the United States Senator from neighboring Louisiana, was the featured speaker of the Elise and William Winter event at Millsaps College Friday. 

Elected to the U.S. Senate in 2016, Kennedy served the State of Louisiana as a 5-term treasurer, secretary of the Department of Revenue and special counsel to Governor Buddy Roemer.

His message -- institutions of higher learning should not bar speakers who may have ideas that some find uncomfortable.

"Thinking people are constantly challenging their assumptions against the arguments of others," said Kennedy. "That's what learning's all about and I think Millsaps does a great job on that."

Senator Kennedy has a son who is about to graduate from Millsaps.

The Louisiana senator is a magna cum laude graduate of Vanderbilt University, with a law degree from the University of Virginia.
