Former Secretary of Homeland Security Jeh Johnson Speaks at NAACP Award Banquet
August 10, 2017
Local luminary Jeh Johnson, the former Secretary of Homeland Security under President Obama, was the keynote speaker at the 2017 annual banquet to benefit the Freedom Fund. He regaled the crowd with stories of his Poughkeepsie childhood, and how these experiences had prepared him for the challenges he would later face. His parents, whom he credited with informative life lessons that gave him the fortitude he would later realize were key ingredients in his success, were in attendance.
