HU Foundation to host Jim O’Donnell January 9

Posted: Friday, January 4, 2019

The Huntington University Foundation will launch the 2019 Foundation Breakfast Series on Wednesday, January 9 by hosting Jim O’Donnell, Executive-in-Residence at Huntington University.

“Jim’s insightful economic review and projections are always one of the most popular programs in our breakfast series,” stated Michael Zahn, HU Foundation president.

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 university plans to kick off the New Year with O’Donnell’s annual review of the economy and his projections for 2019. O’Donnell asks the questions “Are you scared yet” When it comes to the market, what should we be scared of? In almost any area of commerce, we are never as happy as when we can buy things cheaper or on sale – except for our investments.”

The Foundation Breakfast Series is held on the second Wednesday of each month, October through May, excluding December, 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. For more information or to RSVP, please contact Barb Baker at (260) 359-4069 or
