LUBBOCK – Author, journalist and war correspondent Winston Churchill III, grandson
of Britain’s former Prime Minister Winston Churchill, will visit Lubbock on March
Churchill will address the Texas Tech Rawls College of Business’ Chief Executives
Roundtable, staff, faculty, students and members of the Lubbock community at 12 p.m.
at the Lubbock Country Club. He will discuss current conflicts and issues in the Middle
East, including fighting between Israel and the Palestinians, and tensions in Iraq.
Churchill served as a correspondent for Look magazine and the British press during
conflicts in Vietnam, Angola and the Middle East.
Jerry Stevens, program director of the Chief Executives Roundtable, said Churchill
was invited to speak because of his experience covering conflicts in the region and
his work with students. Churchill has spoken at events nationwide, including presentations
to college students.
Individual seats for the event are $65. Tables are available for $750 and include
eight seats and admission to a private reception March 29. For more information or
to make a reservation, contact Randi Rives at (806) 742-3940 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Reservations must be made by March 18.
Churchill entered the British Parliament in 1970 as the youngest Conservative Party
member and served for 27 years. He is the author of “Six Day War,” an account of Israel’s
war with its Arab neighbors, and “Defending the West,” a book about threats posed
by the Soviet Union.
The Chief Executives Roundtable is a Rawls College of Business program in which participants’
membership fees are used for business student scholarships and to bring in nationally
known speakers to address students, faculty and the CER members.
