for global connections to the Greater Cleveland community. Since 1923, we have served the inquisitive and globally-minded citizens in our region who seek to expand their perspectives. We also want to inspire the broader community and the younger generations to grow their global mindsets and connect with the global community right here at home. We believe that these international connections will help us thrive and develop competitively into the future. The 2018-2019 program year was an exciting one at CCWA. We welcomed our new CEO, Carina Van Vliet, hosted peacemaker George Mitchell at our Global Impact Award event, expanded our programming in schools, and greeted a record-number of international visitors. Most meaningfully to us, we launched the Maura O’DonnellMcCarthy Center for Global Understanding, which will offer ongoing global education to a broad audience in our region. All of these highlights and other programs made global connections with a significant local impact. This annual report celebrates our achievements and successes from the past year. We are thankful to the many friends, members, donors, partners and Citizen Diplomat volunteers who participated in our programs, and who help make our community more globally-minded. Thank you for joining us in our mission, and for your engagement and support. CARINA VAN VLIET

Academic WorldQuest Tests Students’ Knowledge of World Affairs Which country is currently host to the largest number of refugees worldwide? Which country has been invited to become NATO’s 30th member state? This past January, 39 local high school students tackled these and many other questions at CCWA’s Academic WorldQuest competition. The students tested their knowledge of world affairs, current events, and foreign policy. After five rounds, a team from Hathaway Brown was declared the winner and advanced to the national championship competition in Washington DC in April.
