The Huntington University Foundation will launch the 2018 Foundation Breakfast Series on Jan. 10 by hosting Jim O’Donnell, executive-in- residence at Huntington University.

In 2010, O’Donnell was appointed to the first named faculty chair at Huntington University. In 2012, he was granted emeritus status by the HU  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.

“We’re going to have some fun this January by having a 10th anniversary party in honor of the Great Recession of 2008. We’re going to look back at the scariness of it all while listening to the nattering nabobs who told us the ‘end is at hand’ over and over again,” stated O’Donnell. “We’ll see what we can learn from this painful passage we all traveled along and endured, and how we now can put that learning to work for our own future stewardship of what God has given us.”

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.
There is a cost for the meal, a portion of which will help support local area students attending HU through the Huntington County Grant.

First-time attendees receive a complimentary bre-akfast courtesy of Bailey-Love Mortuary.
