King’s College Students Attend Churchill Conference

Travel Grant Supported Participation by Members of the House of Winston Churchill

winston1The House of Winston ChurchillA group of students from The King’s College in New York City attended the 30th International Churchill Conference in Washington, D.C., Oct. 31 to Nov. 2, supported by a travel grant from The Churchill Centre. The King’s College is an accredited four-year liberal arts college founded in 1938 and located in downtown Manhattan. Students are organized into “houses” similar to English universities with the “House of Winston Churchill” having over fifty members who share an enthusiastic interest in and admiration for Sir Winston Churchill.

The Centre and the Conference were the subject of glowing reviews from the students. Among the praise, students recalled the conference as “exceptional”, an “incredible experience” and “something that will be remembered by our House for many years”.

One student noted, “It is an honor to be included in this wonderful commemoration of Winston Churchill”.

The Centre provides free admission to Churchill Conference sessions for selected college students in an effort to further impress Sir Winston Churchill’s legacy on younger generations.
