Breakfast to focus on entrepreneurism, economy

Posted: Friday, February 26, 2016

The Huntington University Foundation breakfast scheduled for Wednesday, March 9, will bring together community members to listen to the impact of entrepreneurship as well as the economic state of Huntington.

David Geders, a 2014 HU alum and owner of Copper Chord Music in Huntington, will share how his faith impacts his life as a local entrepreneur. Huntington Mayor Brooks Fetters and Economic Development executive director Mark Wickersham will give economic reports on both the city and the county.

“Our Foundation is focused on the student experience, and you won’t want to miss hearing David Geders as he shares his story of faith and perseverance as a local entrepreneur,” said Holly Sale, Foundation president. “We also will hear from two local leaders about the strength of our city (Huntington Mayor Brooks Fetters) and our county-wide economy (Economic Development executive director Mark Wickersham).”

The March Foundation breakfast featuring Geders, Fetters, and Wickersham will take place on Wednesday, March 9, at the Habecker Dining Commons with breakfast beginning at 7:30 a.m. and the program starting at 8 a.m. and concluding by 9 a.m.

The cost of the breakfast is $10, a portion of which will help support local students attending HU through the Huntington County Grant. First-time attendees enjoy a complimentary breakfast courtesy of Bailey-Love Mortuary. The Foundation Breakfast is held on the second Wednesday of each month, October through May, and is open to the public. Reservations are requested for the breakfast but are not required.
