Posted by: Annie Voy | January 14, 2011 Comments Off on Greg Mortenson comes to Gonzaga |

Mark your calendars.  Greg Mortenson, founder of the Central Asia Institute and author of Three Cups of Tea and Stones Into Schools will be speaking at Gonzaga on March 28, 2011, tentatively scheduled from 7:00 PM at the McCarthey Center with a book signing to follow.  From President McCulloh’s Brief:

I am pleased to announce that, after months of effort, we have been successful in landing nationally-recognized speaker and activist Greg Mortenson for an appearance.  Mr. Mortenson is the author of the highly-acclaimed Three Cups of Tea and Stones Into Schools, and he will be here on Monday, March 28th, 2011 at the McCarthey Center (tentatively 7:30 p.m.) to talk about his amazing story of promoting peace through building schools, especially for women, in Afghanistan.  Mortenson has become a valuable adviser to the U.S. military, given the esteem in which he is held by the Afghan people.  The proceeds from this event will go to support his school-building efforts and I ask you to mark this on your calendar.  More information will soon follow.

This is an amazing opportunity and you are strongly encouraged to attend the event.
