From the Contra Costa Times:
Trustees of the Piedmont Unified School District approved naming the school’s library the Ambassador Chris Stevens Memorial Library to honor Stevens, a U.S. ambassador to Libya who was killed by insurgents in that country one year ago.
Stevens was a student newspaper editor at Piedmont High and visited Spain with the AFS Intercultural Exchange before graduating in 1978. He later earned a bachelor’s degree from UC Berkeley and a law degree from Hastings College of the Law in San Francisco. He served in a variety of diplomatic posts with the U.S. Foreign Service throughout the Middle East and had served in Libya twice before being named ambassador in May 2012
School board president Rick Rauschenbush said the library naming recognized Stevens’ “global citizenry” and service to his country and Libya.
