Two STL men will become Churchill Fellows this weekend
A pair of prominent STL men will join the ranks of Churchill Fellows at Westminster College in Fulton.
The local honorees are businessman and philanthropist Sam Fox, who also was the former U.S. Ambassador to Belgium; and Westminster alumnus Neal F. Perryman, of the Lewis Rice law firm.
The ceremony is 1:30 p.m. Sunday at the Church of St. Mary the Virgin, Aldermanbury, which is part of the National Churchill Museum on the school's campus.
The fellows' association works for the development of the museum, which commemorates Winston Churchill's delivering his historic "Iron Curtain" speech in 1946 at the college.
Ron Dermer, Israel’s ambassador to the U.S., also will be named a fellow and will speak about Churchill's relations with Israel during his time as England's leading statesman and politician.
