|Event Name:||Sunday at the Museum Summer Lecture Series|
|Event Description:||Gibbons will present "Growing up in Aiken: A Southern Point of View" at 2:30 p.m. Aug. 18.
Gibbons was born and raised in Aiken. He graduated from the University of Alabama in 1994 and returned to Aiken in 1995, and started work as a reporter at the Aiken Standard. He began writing his column, "Mike's Life," in 1996 and continues the column to this day.
Gibbons left media in 2012 to work in nonprofits. That shift led him to relocate with his wife and two children to Charleston in 2014 to run the Charleston Regional Alliance for the Arts.
In 2019, Gibbons became the director of corporate development for Trident United Way.
The lecture will be in the museum's ballroom. A reception will follow.
