Also at the breakfast, information about the “America’s Best Hope” leadership conference to be held on campus on November 13 will be presented. The Foundation breakfast is held on the second Wednesday of each month, October through May, and is open to the public. The breakfast 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 the Huntington County Grant. First-time attendees enjoy a complimentary breakfast courtesy of Bailey-Love Mortuary.
