Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani will speak at Georgia Southern University’s Hanner Fieldhouse on Wednesday, March 28 at 7 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.
While the event is free, seating is limited, and tickets to reserve seats will be distributed to the public from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. today and Friday. Tickets are available at the Hanner ticket booth located to the left of the main Hanner entrance off Fair Road.
During Giuliani’s term as mayor of New York, 1994-2001, he was credited with helping spearhead the economic turnaround and revitalization of the city. Giuliani’s leadership in the months following the 9/11 attacks led him to be dubbed “America’s Mayor” and he was named Time magazine’s “Person of the Year.” Giuliani also received a knighthood from Great Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II for his efforts.
Giuliani’s presentation at Georgia Southern is titled “Principled Leadership: In the Face of Change and Crisis.”
“Our students were children during the 9/11 attacks, and they still remember images of Mayor Giuliani walking the streets of New York leading emergency efforts, comforting victims, and telling the world that the city would recover,” said Teresa Thompson, Georgia Southern vice president for Student Affairs and Enrollment Management.
“His message of leadership, even in the most unimaginable circumstances, will be one our students can carry with them long after they leave Georgia Southern University. We believe this message will be inspiring, and will give our students a unique chance to hear first-hand from someone who was at the center of one of the most important events of our lifetimes.”
