Pulitzer panel one of several major fall events

Three major events highlight September activities at Elon University.

A Pulitzer panel titled "The North Carolina Newspaper and the Obligation of Public Service" will be presented at 7:30 p.m. Sept. 5 in McCrary Theatre. The panel, chaired by Dr. William Friday, will feature North Carolina journalists whose papers have received the Pulitzer Prize for Public Service. They will discuss the delicate balance between reporting the news and providing service to their communities. The panel members are: Horace Carter, whose Whiteville News Reporter and Tabor City Tribune received the Pulitzer for the paper's campaign against the Ku Klux Klan; Frank Daniels Jr., whose Raleigh News & Observer received the Pulitzer for articles on the health risks of waste disposal in North Carolina's hog industry; and Rolfe Neill of the Charlotte Observer, which received the award for revealing misuse of funds by the PTL television ministry. The program is sponsored by the School of Communications and Elon's Office of Cultural Programs.

Elon will mark the one-year anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks with special activities from Sept. 8-13. Events will include a combined worship service with area churches at 5 p.m. Sept. 8 at the Elon Community Church; an all-university convocation at 11 a.m. Sept. 11, in Koury Center; and a candlelight vigil at 8 p.m. on Young Commons.

The featured speaker at Elon's fall convocation (6 p.m. Sept. 18) is Benazir Bhutto. Elected prime minister of Pakistan at the age of 35, Bhutto became the youngest head of state in the world and the first female prime minister in the Muslim world. (Her father, Prime Minister Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, was ousted from office in a 1977 military coup and later executed.) Bhutto now lives in exile in London. Her convocation address is the keynote of the Globalization Symposium that celebrates the opening of the Isabella Cannon Centre. Admission is by ticket only. Tickets are free to faculty, staff and students.
