HUNTINGTON, Ind. — Since its inception, the Horizon Leadership Program has helped to greatly increase diversity
on Huntington University’s campus. On Oct. 9, current and past
directors Jesse Brown and Arthur Wilson will discuss the success of the
program at the monthly Foundation Breakfast.
Leadership Program is a collaborative effort between Huntington
University and Youth for Christ with the goal of creating a more
racially and ethnically diverse campus. Since fall 2008, more than 20
Horizon scholars have come to the university, including five for the
2013-2014 school year.
Wilson came to the university in 2009 to
lead the Horizon Leadership Program. After Wilson became the campus
pastor at HU, Jesse Brown, associate dean of student development, took
over as the director of the program.
At the breakfast, they will
share their passion for developing leaders from all walks of life in
order to unleash them for ministry in an increasingly diverse community.
Foundation Breakfast is open to the public. It will begin at 7:45 a.m.
in the Habecker Dining Commons and conclude by 9 a.m. The cost of the
breakfast is $7. First-time attendees eat free courtesy of Bailey-Love
Mortuary. Reservations are appreciated. RSVP to Barb Baker at

Foundation’s breakfast is held on the second Wednesday of every month
during the school year. For more information, contact the Huntington
