THE GOLDEN PLATE AWARDEES
The following is a partial list of Golden Plate honorees. These visionaries and pioneers - whose ideas and talents have influenced the world -- have all participated in the annual International Achievement Summit and addressed the student delegates. They are listed with the year of their induction into the Academy. A more comprehensive Summary of Golden Plate Recipients, grouped by decade and field of endeavor, is also available.

Still, wonder if he'd have agreed with Erdogan

Take care, FRiend .............................................................................. FRegards
