Stirling Lecturer—F.W. de Klerk, world renowned peacemaker and former president of South Africa who created and currently chairs the Global Leadership Foundation, delivered the 2005 Alex P. Stirling Lecture Nov. 16 in Bruno Great Hall of the Norton Campus Center on the Birmingham-Southern campus. Awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1993, de Klerk shared the award with Nelson Mandela for their work for the peaceful termination of the “apartheid” regime in South Africa, a move which led to multiracial elections and laid the foundation for a new democratic process in that country. Among many other honors, he was named along with Mandela, Yitzak Rabin, and Yasser Arafat as Time magazine's “Man of the Year” in 1993.
Pictured here prior to the lecture is de Klerk (third from left) with BSC SGA officers (from left) Julie Deupree, secretary; Penney Patterson, treasurer; Kris Sornsin, 1st vice president; George Nelson, president; and Cal NeSmith, 2nd vice president. The Stirling Lecture is sponsored annually by the BSC Student Government Association in memory of the Birmingham-Southern student who died of cancer in 1995.
