The Remnant Trust, recently relocated to its Hoosier roots in Indiana, is an educational foundation committed to elevating educational standards and the public’s understanding of individual liberty and human dignity through the
precedent-setting, hands-on availability of the world’s great ideas in original form. Its 1600-volume Wisdom of the Ages Athenaeum, dating to 2, 500 BCE, is drawn from four continents and 12 languages. It is among the world’s largest and finest privately-funded collections focused on the ideas and ideals for America: This Great Experiment.
America’s 48th Vice President, Mike Pence, will give the keynote address at The Remnant Trust’s 25th anniversary celebration this Fall at the Columbia Club in Indianapolis.
Michael R. Pence was born in Columbus, Indiana, on June 7, 1959, one of six children born to Edward and Nancy Pence. As a young boy he had a front row seat to the American Dream. After his grandfather immigrated to the United States when he was 17, his family settled in the Midwest. The future Vice President
watched his Mom and Dad build everything that matters—a family, a business, and a good name. Sitting at the feet of his mother and his father, who started a successful convenience store business in their small Indiana town, he was raised to believe in the importance of hard work, faith, and family.
Vice President Pence set off for Hanover College, earning his bachelor’s degree in history in 1981. While there, he renewed his Christian faith which remains the driving force in his life. He later attended Indiana University School of Law and met the love of his life, Second Lady Karen Pence.
