An Immigrant’s Success Story in the U.S.

Wednesday, August 30, 2017 (12:00 PM – 1:30 PM)
Tower Center Board Room, Room 227, Carr Collins Hall (map)


Join us for lunch and a discussion of an immigrant’s story in the U.S. Best-selling author Nick Adams will examine the opportunities and cultural forces that make the United States outstanding — such as individualism, optimism and proclivity to risk.

Nick Adams is a three-time best-selling author and Fox News commentator. Born and raised in Australia, Adams is a legal immigrant to America, receiving a rare Extraordinary Ability Green Card.

Former Governor Rick Perry bestowed a unique honor on him, formally appointing him an Honorary Texan in 2013. In the United States, he has spoken at conventions, corporate meetings, military bases, universities, high schools and churches, in 30 states. Abroad, he has given major addresses in England, Germany and South Korea. Adams is the Founder and Executive Director of The Foundation for Liberty and American Greatness (FLAG) (www.flagusa.org), an organization that visits elementary, middle and high schools to provide training to increase patriotic pride and bridge the major civics deficiency that currently exists.

He is a survivor of childhood cancer, given at the age of sixteen months, just a five percent chance of survival. Adams earned both undergraduate and postgraduate degrees at the University of Sydney. He was publicly elected the youngest Deputy Mayor in Australian history in Sydney, at the age of 21.


The event is free and open to the public, but reservations are required.
