“This event provides a unique opportunity for business and academia to collaborate in a college setting,” said Dr. Timothy Bisping, interim dean of Louisiana Tech’s College of Business. “Speaking to economics and finance classes, the bankers will provide examples of real-life applications of what students learn in class.”
“It is exciting for us to be able to host such a great group with such a vast wealth of knowledge,” said Dr. Otis Gilley, head of the department of economics and finance. “This will be a great opportunity for our students to network with the best in the business and find out what it really takes to be employable in the banking industry.”
Among the speakers are Drake Mills, president of Community Trust Bank; Bill Hogan, president of Bank of Ruston; and several Louisiana Tech alumni including John Michael Rowland, Dane Harris and Tracy Perry. The morning guest lectures will be followed by a presentation by Princeton Williams and Thomas Siems from the Federal Reserve Bank in Dallas.
The afternoon presentation is open to the public and will take place in the Davis Auditorium in the College of Business Building at 1:30 p.m.
Banker’s Day is made possible through the generosity of the Tindol family. School of Business officials said this support of Banker’s Day allows the memory of William D. Tindol to continue to impact the future of banking by educating the next generation of banking executives.
