March 15, 2002 – (Lexington, Ky.) – Mike Romey, special assistant to the Secretary of the Treasury, will speak to high school students at the 30th Annual Worldview Conference, beginning at 9:30 a.m. today in the University of Kentucky Student Center Worsham Theatre. Romey’s job is to find Osama bin Laden’s fortune, said to be hidden in secret bank accounts under different names.

The conference will also feature remarks by Cathryn Cornett, counterterrorism expert for the FBI and a UK graduate, and Bob Pringle, an adjunct professor in the UK Patterson School of Diplomacy and International Commerce and a former CIA officer.

Co-sponsored by the Patterson School and Lexington Rotary, the annual conference exposes high school juniors and seniors to topics of international concern and perhaps engenders in them a desire to pursue a career in international relations.

The topic of this year’s conference is how America can perform the delicate balancing act of combating terrorism while maintaining civil rights and a democratic immigration policy.

The conference is free and open to anyone.
