Asbury College hosts “Leading through Economic Crises” Economic Forum
WILMORE, KY — It seems like everybody is making a lot of talk about the
today’s money problems and the recession, but few are actually doing anything about it. Not so at Asbury College where President Dr. Sandra C. Gray and the Department of Business, Economics, and Political Science hosted an economic forum called “Leading through Economic Crises on Thursday” April 2 at the Asbury College Student Center..
The free event, which drew approximately 200 people, was designed to help the community think coherently about the present and future.
Never miss a local story.
The guest panel of business leaders was impressive, notably Scott Rasmussen of Rasmussen Reports. Other panelists were Steve Whitman, former VP of Exstream Software; Doug Dean, CPA, of Dean, Dorton and Ford; Linda Rumpke, of JP Morgan Chase Bank, Lexington; and Rich Wright, of YUM! Brands. Dr. Gray served as moderator of the panel, and presided over audience questions and interaction with the panelists.
