James W. Harding Executive Speaker Series

Harding 2013

Lycoming College has been awarded a major grant from the James S. Kemper Foundation in Long Grove Illinois, to endow the James W. Harding Executive Speaker Series in the IMS. Because of this, students have the opportunity to meet and socialize with top business executives. These speakers have included the CEO of an international retailer, a vice president of a four billion-dollar paper company, an internationally recognized specialist on the energy markets, and a managing director of a worldwide insurance brokerage firm. When we invite guest speakers, we always schedule time for them to meet and dine privately with students. This encourages honest, informal discussions with some of America's top business leaders.
