ARKADELPHIA – The voice of the millennial generation is powerful – and one that is increasingly receiving more attention.
Mike Huckabee, former Arkansas governor and political commentator, recently addressed this topic on his Fox News show “Huckabee” in a segment titled “Does the GOP need to start listening to millennials?”
Huckabee, a 1976 Ouachita Baptist University (OBU) alumnus, hosted a panel of three college students including Ouachita senior Molly Bowman, a mass communications and Christian studies/theology major from Conway. During the segment, students discussed issues of concern to millenials and how they felt about the current state of the Republican Party. Other panelists included students from the University of Notre Dame and Marist College.
Huckabee contacted his alma mater, looking for a Ouachita student to add to the panel. After consulting with several campus leaders, Trennis Henderson, vice president for communications, decided to submit Bowman’s name for consideration.
