Serving our Country with a Legislative Update

The Huntington University Foundation Breakfast will look a bit different this November than it has in Novembers of the past. The November 14 Foundation Breakfast will provide valuable insights into the current climate in the government and allow local and state government representatives to discuss agenda items for the upcoming legislative session. 

“The Huntington University Foundation breakfast series continues to provide a venue for discussing current and informative topics, presented by knowledgeable individuals that brings new insights and understanding about our great community,” stated Kay Schwob, interim director of advancement and HU Foundation Secretary. “Please join us this month to honor veterans who have served this great nation and hear from legislators currently serving as our mouthpiece in the legislative process.”

In addition to the legislative update, the HU Foundation will also be honoring veterans. Bailey-Love Mortuary has graciously agreed to sponsor the breakfast for any veterans who attend. 

“We are blessed to have an opportunity to honor our veterans,” stated HU Foundation President, Michael Zahn. “In addition, our elected officials will share their thoughts on government issues.”

Government representatives attending the Foundation Breakfast will be Congressman Jim Banks’ representative, Tinisha Weigelt; State Representative Dan Leonard, House District 50; and State Senator Andy Zay, District 17.
