On Friday night, we gathered at Meridian House for one of DC’s most glamorous events, the 48th Annual Meridian Ball. We snapped Congressman Mark Meadows and his wife, Debbie Meadows, with Congressional Chairs Bobbi Brown and her husband, Sen. John Barrasso.
The annual ball brings together members of the public and private sector to celebrate Meridian’s ongoing efforts to prepare leaders for a complex global future. Here, Assistant Secretary of State for Educational and Cultural Affairs Evan Ryan joins Deputy Secretary of State Tony Blinken with Adrienne Arsht Latin America Center Ambassador-in-Residence Capricia Marshall and her husband, Dr. Robert Marshall.
Guests gathered at the beautifully decorated estate for dessert and dancing following various Ambassador-hosted dinners and the White-Meyer dinner, also hosted on Meridian’s campus.
