HU Foundation Breakfast to feature O'Donnell

Posted: Friday, January 8, 2016

The 2016 Huntington University Foundation Breakfasts will start up again with the first breakfast on Wednesday, January 13, as the university kicks off the New Year with Jim O’Donnell’s annual review of the economy. O’Donnell’s forecast has become a breakfast series favorite. O’Donnell plans to answer the question, “What is one to do?” by offering practical help and psychological support to individuals who are scared to do anything, or may be doing the wrong things with their savings and retirement investments.

In 2010, O’Donnell was appointed to the first named faculty chair at Huntington University. In 2012, he was granted Emeritus Status by the board of trustees, in recognition of his 19 years as a faculty member. He continues to speak, write, and travel for the university as well as many other organizations.

The Foundation Breakfast is held on the second Wednesday of each month, October through May, and is open to the public. It begins at 7:45 a.m. in the Habecker Dining Commons and concludes by 9 a.m. The cost of the breakfast is $10, a portion of which will help support local area students attending HU through the Huntington County Grant. First-time attendees enjoy a complimentary breakfast courtesy of Bailey-Love Mortuary.
