Winston Ambassador Program

The Winston Center had a great fall semester. The most notable speaker of the semester was David McCullough, author, historian, and two-time winner of the Pulitzer Prize. The McCullough event was a great representation of what the Winston Center has stood for over the last decade, as it engaged the Boston College community in intellectual discussion and challenged us all to be the ethical leaders of tomorrow. The Winston Center Ambassador Program not only lets students meet each guest speaker, it also promotes a community of leaders who are shaped by events and each other. This year many of us had the privilege of spending a few Friday mornings at St. Francis House, sharing breakfast with people and getting to know each other a little better in the process. Then speakers like Mayor Michael Tubbs and Jacqueline Novagratz allowed us to see what service leadership is like in action. It is truly an honor to be a part of a program that understands leadership as encompassing and exemplifying compassion, empathy, and self-knowledge.
