FOR RELEASE
2010-04-06
Huntington, Ind.—The Horizon Leadership Program will be the focus of the Huntington University Foundation’s breakfast April 14.

Launched in the fall of 2008, the Horizon Leadership Program is a partnership between Huntington University and Youth for Christ USA with the goal of creating a more racially and ethnically diverse campus. A cohort of students from racially and ethnically diverse backgrounds is selected each year to receive the Horizon Leadership Scholarship. A combination of federal, state and institutional aid, the scholarship covers all fees associated with tuition and housing costs for up to 10 semesters.

April Meyer, HU senior admissions counselor and member of the Horizon Task Force, will give an overview of the Horizon program as well as review the recruitment and selection process. She will also describe the impact of the program on the lives of first- and second-year participants. Students will also tell their own personal experiences from the Horizon program.

The public is invited to attend. The breakfast will begin at 7:45 a.m. in the Habecker Dining Commons and conclude by 9 a.m. The cost of the breakfast is $6. First-time attendees eat free.

The Foundation’s breakfast is held on the second Wednesday of every month during the school year.
