Former President Jimmy Carter will be at the Charles H. Kirbo Regional Center, which is named after the former president’s dear friend and trusted adviser, on Tuesday, Feb. 18.

A recipient of the 2002 Nobel Peace Prize, the Norwegian Nobel Committee cited President Carter’s decades of untiring effort to find peaceful solutions to international conflicts, to advance democracy and human rights, and to promote economic and social development. He is the only U.S. President to have received the Prize after leaving office.

During his presidency from 1977 to 1981, President Carter’s mediation was a vital contribution to the Camp David Accords, the treaty of peace between Israel and Egypt. Other foreign policy accomplishments included the Panama Canal treaties, the SALT II treaty with the old Soviet Union and the establishment of U.S. diplomatic relations with the People’s Republic of China. During his presidency and even after, President Carter and his wife, Rosalyn, have worked toward resolving conflicts, promoting democracy and protecting human rights.

A native of Plains, Ga., President Carter attended Georgia Southwestern College and the Georgia Institute of Technology, and he received his bachelor’s from the U.S. Naval Academy. He also served as Georgia’s 76th governor.
