Greenville’s own Mike Gallagher, political commentator, thespian and radio host, will speak on the Furman University campus Thursday, April 10 at 5 p.m. in Shaw Hall of the Younts Conference Center.

His lecture, “A Conservative’s Approach to Altruism,” is sponsored jointly by the Year of Altruism (YOA) and Furman’s Conservative Students for a Better Tomorrow (CSBT).  It is free and open to the public.

“We are thrilled to welcome Mr. Gallagher to the community and even more excited to hear his thoughts on the altruistic nature of conservatism,” said Elliot Stegall, CEO of CSBT.  “Mike is known as the Happy Conservative Warrior because he practices his conservative views through kindness and charity.”

“We are eager to partner with CSBT to make this event an exemplar for the entire community to engage in sharing divergent opinions and dialogue,” said YOA founder Rabbi Marc Wilson.  “Mike is a perfect choice to move this vision forward.  He is a well-recognized altruist who speaks compellingly from his conservative commitments.”

Opportunities to participate in Gallagher’s Army and Furman’s Heller Service Corps will be available after the event.

The Year of Altruism is a series of celebratory events taking place from August 2013 through June 2014. Its mission is to encourage and celebrate altruism, focusing the community on fostering acts of kindness in its organizations and individuals.

CSBT was founded to advance the conservative principles that founded and sustain the nation. It provides a conservative vision by educating the Furman Community and contributing to a vibrant discussion of ideas.
