Thomas Hoenig, president and chief executive officer of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City, will address challenges in the global economy as the speaker in William Jewell College’s Everett P. Truex Economic and Financial Forum at 7:30 p.m. October 27 in Yates-Gill College Union Rooms 221-222 on the campus in Liberty, Mo. The lecture is free and open to the public; tickets or reservations are not required.

Hoenig is president and chief executive officer of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City. The bank is one of 12 regional banks in the Federal Reserve System, which is a key participant in setting national monetary policy, supervising and regulating commercial banks and bank holding companies, serving as the bank for the U.S. Government and for commercial banks, and providing other payment services to depository institutions. Hoenig directs Federal Reserve activities in the Tenth Federal Reserve District, an area that includes Colorado, Kansas, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Wyoming, the northern half of New Mexico, and the western third of Missouri. He is also a member of the Federal Reserve System’s Open Market Committee, the key body with authority over monetary policy.

The endowed lecture series focuses on finance and economics. The Everett P. Truex Economic and Financial Forum brings nationally recognized economists to William Jewell College each year. Funding for the endowed forum is provided by the Everett Truex Trust. The late Dr. Truex was a Liberty High School graduate and a 1942 William Jewell alumnus who later returned to the College as an economics and statistics professor.

“Everett was a faithful supporter of the college and was part of a close-knit family with many strong ties to Jewell,” said Chad Jolly, vice president for advancement. “He believed strongly in the power of a liberal arts education. The endowed lecture series he has provided will provide new insights for future generations of William Jewell College students.”

William Jewell College is committed to bringing together talented students and gifted faculty mentors within a vibrant community sparked by a rigorous and intentional liberal arts curriculum. A full range of personal and professional development experiences are presented by the selective national liberal arts college’s location within the Kansas City metroplex of more than two million.
