Jason Thompson serves as the Director of Diversity and Inclusion on the U.S. Olympic Committee. But back in the ‘90s, before he was running diversity initiatives for the Olympic Committee, he was the first black president of ASUW at the University of Wyoming. Now, he’s returning to his alma mater as the keynote speaker of UW’s MLK Days of Dialogue. He told Wyoming Public Radio’s Caroline Ballard that being student body president wasn’t exactly one of his ambitions.

Thompson will be speaking Thursday, February 1 at 7:30 p.m. in the Union Ballroom as park of the MLK Days of Dialogue.
