Hancock Symposium Students

BISH students selected to participate in the Hancock Symposium

Year 13 students Serena and Akshaya have been selected by members of the IB team to participate in the Hancock Symposium at Westminster College.  Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright is the keynote speaker.

 

Madeleine K. Albright, the first female Secretary of State and at that time, the highest-ranking woman in the history of the United States government, will deliver the 59th John Findley Green Foundation Lecture this September on the campus of Westminster College in Fulton, MO.

 

Following in the footsteps of Sir Winston Churchill and many other of the world’s greatest leaders, Dr. Albright will speak to the Westminster college community Thursday, September 19.

 

Some of the other prestigious Green Foundation lecturers in Westminster’s history are British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, U.S.S.R. President Mikhail Gorbachev, President of Poland Lech Walesa, President Harry S. Truman, President Gerald Ford, Vice President George H. W. Bush, and Secretary of State and Treasury James A. Baker.

 

This is a tremendous honor for our students, they will engage in two days of lectures, panel discussions, and presentations on one particular subject of global importance.

 

“Breakthrough” is the theme of this year’s Hancock Symposium, which takes its inspiration from the Breakthrough sculpture created by internationally acclaimed artist and Churchill’s granddaughter Edwina Sandys, from eight contiguous sections of the original Berlin Wall. Dr. Albright’s lecture will be given in the auditorium adjacent to where the Breakthrough sculpture stands on the Westminster campus.

This Hancock Symposium theme will focus on human “breakthroughs” in every aspect of our life and honor the 30-year milestone of the fall of the Berlin Wall.
