The Supreme Court was the supreme setting Sept. 22, as Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was presented with the Institute for Education’s 2014 Cultural Diplomacy Award. Coach Kathy Kemper opened the program before Ginsburg was serenaded by mezzo-soprano Denyce Graves and introduced by former U.S. Solicitor General Theodore Olson. Ginsburg gave “a hearty welcome to my workplace,” before conducting a veritable history lesson as she discussed each of the chief justices whose portraits adorned the room. The IFE promotes international understanding and educates youth for global citizenship.
