SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - Former CIA operative, author and activist Valerie Plame will be the keynote speaker at next week’s graduation ceremony for the New Mexico School for the Arts.
The ceremony will be held Monday at the Santa Fe Convention Center.
Officials say this will mark the second full four-year class to graduate from the school, which opened its doors in 2010.
In 2003, Valerie Plame was exposed as a CIA operative by officials of the George W. Bush administration in an effort to discredit her husband, Joe Wilson, a former ambassador who had criticized the decision to invade Iraq.
Plame’s memoir was a best-seller. She’s a consultant to the Santa Fe Institute, a member of the Global Zero Leadership board and is the co-author of a series of espionage novels.
