Nick Clooney is our honored speaker for the 3rd Annual Walter Cronkite Awards Ceremony.
It will be held on August 2, 2012 from 5 to 6 at the Old Whaling Church.
As Mr. Cronkite’s daughter Kathy said, Nick Clooney was one of the stars of the huge CBS Memorial event for Dad. I think we all agreed that Nick's personal, touching and beautifully written tribute far outshone that of any of the other guests', including the President. He should be a great draw on name value alone, but those who come just for that reason will be in for a great treat.
Mr. Cronkite was the honorary chairperson of the Stone Soup Leadership Institute for over a decade. His wisdom and vision of preparing our youth as future leaders in their communities gave rise to this Annual Awards Ceremony. The event is free and open to the Vineyard community. The Martha's Vineyard Youth Leadership Initiative is a project of the Institute: www.mvyli.org.
