PASSION TO SERVE — During a reception and banquet Wednesday night, Provost and Executive Vice President Jerry Gilbert, left, presented ambassador Janos Radvanyi with a plaque in honor of his lifetime achievement. Prior to immigrating to the United States, Radvanyi served as the Hungarian Ambassador to the United States and in 1968 sought and was granted political asylum in America. Radvanyi has been at Mississippi State since 1972 and founded the Center for International Security and Strategic Studies a decade later. In 1996, following his tenure as a history professor and head of the center, the university named him the first chairholder for the newly established Endowed Chair for International Security and Strategic Studies.
