Reggie Harris, assistant professor of management, regularly hosts guest speakers for his classes. Recent guests for the Principles of Management class were Ian and Leda Goodman, co-owners of Goodman Coffee Roasters in Chattanooga, Tennessee, and Greg Bryan, founder of Bryan & Bryan Home Inspectors based in Texas.

Through these discussions, Harris’ students had the opportunity to engage with these small business owners who shared insights on the how they grew their businesses, and how they live out their faith by the way they manage their businesses.

Harris said, “I’m so grateful for these small business owners who took the time to share their stories with our students. Through their presentations, our students were able to learn first-hand how faith and business can successfully intersect.”
