Journalist Judy Woodruff to Deliver Lecture April 23
Broadcast journalist Judy Woodruff will deliver Meredith’s second “Woman of Achievement” lecture on Wednesday, April 23, 2008 at 7 p.m. in Jones Auditorium.
Woodruff has covered politics and other news for more than three decades at CNN, NBC and PBS. She is a senior correspondent for PBS’ “NewsHour with Jim Lehrer” and is the editor of the show’s 2008 election coverage.
Woodruff attended Meredith College from 1964-66 before earning her bachelor’s degree at Duke University. In 2003, Meredith College presented her with an honorary degree.
The “Woman of Achievement” lecture is part of the 2007-08 Blue Cross and Blue Shield Presidential Lecture Series. The inaugural “Woman of Achievement” lecture was delivered in April 2007 by Meredith College alumna and internationally known Biblical scholar Phyllis Trible.
The Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina Presidential Lecture Series at Meredith College stimulates and enhances the intellectual and academic climate at Meredith College and the broader community. Through this lecture series, Meredith promotes intellectually rigorous discussions that revolve around the College's annual theme.
The series was established in 2005 with a grant from Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina, which recently extended its support of the series through 2010.
