Malkin at SyracuseYoung America’s Foundation recently launched the Reagan 100 Lecture Series as part of our year-long celebration of the 100th anniversary of Ronald Reagan’s birth.

This series, made possible through the generous support of the Wendy P. McCaw Foundation, brings together some of the Foundation’s most popular speakers including Ben Stein, Michelle Malkin, Ann Coulter, Michael Reagan, Dinesh D’Souza, Paul Kengor, Peter Schweizer, Bay Buchanan, Kate Obenshain, Jonah Goldberg, David Limbaugh, and Stephen Moore.

These speakers bring Reagan’s ideas alive for the next generation to ensure that today’s students understand the importance of freedom.

In March, the Foundation scheduled two Reagan 100 campus lectures. Michelle Malkin spoke to a packed hall at Syracuse University, and Ann Coulter addressed 2,000 students and community members at the University of Wyoming.

Line to See Ann Coulter at WyomingAt both events, the Left promised protests, but their actual demonstrations were small compared to the thousands attending the lectures. Student Caitlin Wallace invited Coulter to speak at the University of Wyoming to counter Bill Ayers’s campus speech in 2010. Anticipation for Coulter’s appearance was tremendous as students and community members lined up for the speech more than hour before the doors opened.

However, due to a delayed flight, Coulter was more than an hour late for the speech, but not one person left the lecture hall. Despite a few hecklers, the crowd was tremendously supportive and gave Coulter a standing ovation. The AP reported on the story and you can read more about the event here.

Upcoming appearances by the Foundation’s Reagan 100 Scholars include:

  • Michelle Malkin at Marquette University – April 11
  • David Limbaugh at St. Louis University – April 13
