THE SCENE: Over 1,000 distinguished guests attended The World Affairs Council of San Antonio annual Citizen of the Year Award Dinner at the Marriot Rivercenter. Laura Bush, former First Lady of the United States, was the keynote speaker for the event. After enjoying a sumptuous gourmet dinner, guests enjoyed the award ceremony, during which Nancy and Edward Steves were honored as International Citizens of the Year in recognition of their commitment to forging a greater understanding of global issues.

THE VIBE: After the Award Ceremony, Former First Lady Laura Bush gave her keynote address. A leading voice for spreading freedom and promoting human rights across the globe, Mrs. Bush is a strong supporter of literacy, education, and women’s rights. Her powerful speech underscored the theme of the evening, emphasizing the importance of making a positive impact as a global citizen.

Honorees Edward Galt Steves and his wife Nancy live their lives as global citizens. They follow in the footsteps of the late Edward Steves who emigrated to the United States from Germany, and started Ed Steves Sash and Door in 1866. The San Antonio-based company, now known as Steves & Sons, recently celebrated 150 years in business and Steves serves as its CEO.

THE CAUSE: The dinner supports the World Affairs Council of San Antonio in its mission to promote public understanding of world affairs, and to help the community and future leaders participate as global citizens.
