Now for today’s Who Am I clue.
Who am I?
I became the first African-American Secretary of State in U.S. history when I took office
in 2001. I was a career soldier who fought in the U.S. Army during the Vietnam War. I
rose through the ranks to become a general, then became national security adviser to
President Ronald Reagan. I became chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff under George
Bush the elder, directing U.S. forces during the first Gulf War. I retired in 1993 and
published my autobiography, My American Journey, in 1995. After years on the lecture
circuit, I was chosen by George W. Bush to be Secretary of State in 2001. I was often
perceived to be a moderate among more conservative voices in the administration. I
submitted my resignation to Bush in November of 2004, shortly after Bush won election
to a second term. I was succeeded as Secretary of State by Condoleezza Rice, the first
African-American woman to hold the job.
Who am I? Please submit your educated guess on who this prominent African
American is to the main office written on a scrap piece of paper. Make sure you include
your full name and first period teacher. A winner will be selected from correct
responses and awarded Loy Norrix gear.
