Foundation Breakfast to Focus on Local Economy

The Huntington University Foundation will host its monthly breakfast on Wednesday, March 14, focusing on local economic development. Steve Kimmel, executive director of the Huntington County Chamber of Commerce, will examine how the Chamber of Commerce is involved in this process, and Chris Storie, Novae Corp., and Andrew Drummond, (class of 2010), Huntington Sheet Metal, will discuss the effects of their respective businesses on the local economy.

“Please join us to hear about the Huntington economy from three insiders from our community. Steve, Chris and Andrew will share their thoughts on the economy through this interactive discussion,” stated Michael Zahn, Huntington University Foundation President.

The March Foundation Breakfast begins at 7:45 a.m. in the Habecker Dinning Commons and concludes by 9:00 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.
