WEST POINT, N.Y. (AP) - Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice will receive the U.S. Military Academy’s annual Thayer Award.

The award to be given Monday at the historic academy is named for a former West Point superintendent and is given to citizens who serve the national interest.

Rice is a professor at Stanford University. She was President George W. Bush’s secretary of state from 2005 to 2009.

She will receive the award during a ceremony hosted by the academy’s Association of Graduates after cadets conduct a review in her honor.

Past recipients of the Thayer Award include Dwight Eisenhower, Douglas MacArthur, Bob Hope, Neil Armstrong, Tom Brokaw and Colin Powell.
