Economics and Business Program Hosts 16th Annual Caudill Luncheon

On April 24, the economics and business program hosted the 16th Annual Alfred & Shirley Wampler Caudill Luncheon at historic Boone Tavern Hotel & Restaurant.

Nearly 30 economics and business seniors had the opportunity to experience fine dining while learning important points of transitioning from college to the professional world . The guest speaker was David Harrison, a Berea College alumnus and resource specialist at Robert Half, a professional staffing services company that has been named to “Fortune” magazine’s list of “Most Admired Companies.”

The Caudill Luncheon is an educational program made possible by a generous gift by alumnus Dr. Don Caudill in honor of his parents, Alfred and Shirley Wampler Caudill.

Berea College, the first interracial and coeducational college in the South, focuses on learning, labor and service. The College admits only academically promising students with limited financial resources, primarily from Kentucky and Appalachia, although students come from 40 states and 70 countries. Every Berea student receives a Tuition Promise Scholarship, which means no Berea student pays for tuition. Berea is one of nine federally-recognized Work Colleges, so students work 10 hours or more weekly, earning money for books, housing and meals. The College’s motto, “God has made of one blood all peoples of the earth,” speaks to its inclusive Christian character.
