Former U.S. Senator George LeMieux today announced the inaugural speaker at the LeMieux Center for Public Policy at Palm Beach Atlantic University. National political analyst and Harvard School of Government Professor David Gergen will speak to students and special guests at the University on Thursday, March 21, at 6:30 p.m. The free public event takes place in the University's DeSantis Family Chapel, 300 Okeechobee Blvd., West Palm Beach.
“I am very excited and pleased to welcome David Gergen as the LeMieux Center’s inaugural speaker. As a journalist, an analyst, and a senior advisor to four U.S. presidents, David brings an unparalleled depth of insight into national politics and first-hand accounts of America’s leading political figures,” said Senator LeMieux. “One of the reasons the Center was founded at Palm Beach Atlantic was to give students opportunities for conversations about public policy and leadership. There are a series of substantial and ongoing issues facing Florida and America, and a need for thoughtful consideration in how to address these challenges. I look forward to David presenting his insights at the University.”
