Former presidential candidate Jeb Bush to deliver Furphy Lecture

UPPER SAUCON TWP., Pa. - Jeb Bush is coming to DeSales University. 

The former Florida governor and Republican presidential candidate is going to deliver the 31st Rev. Thomas J. Furphy Lecture in Billera Hall at the university. The event will take place Nov. 8 at 7:30 p.m.

Although most of us know him from his run in the 2016 presidential election, Bush was also the first Republican to serve two terms as Florida governor. He has a bachelor's degree in Latin American affairs from the University of Texas at Austin. 

The Furphy Lecture Series is named in memory of Fr. Thomas J. Furphy who distinguished himself as a teacher of "National Problems" during his 38 year teaching career. 

It's only fitting then the theme of this lecture series is "National and International Problems." The event is free and open to the public but tickets are required. You can reserve them here
