Co-chairs Brendan Healey ’16 and Abigail Oliver ’17, along with faculty advisor, Professor Sarah Luria welcome Pulitzer prize-winning couple, Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn to the 50th annual Hannify-Howland Memorial Lecture. The lecture, which recognizes individuals who have distinguished themselves in the realm of public service in honor of Edward Hanify, a member of the graduating class of 1904, and Weston Howland, addressed challenges facing America today.
The husband-and-wife duo addressed Holy Cross community members with a talk entitled, “Why Students Should Care About the World—& Change It”. Using their own experiences as journalists, Kristof and WuDunn inspired students to shape and contribute to a meaningful global environment.
At the close of the lecture students and guests engaged with the speakers during a question and answer session, followed by a book signing in the Hogan ballroom.
