Risk Management and Insurance Major Featured in Bloomberg BusinessWeek

2014 EKU Homecoming King Jonny Blount and Queen Krissie Hogan

With approximately half of its workforce nearing retirement age in the next decade, the insurance industry is anticipating at least 500,000 job openings by 2022.

Now, the challenge is to attract millennials into a career field that has been portrayed, unfairly perhaps, as a little dull.

But Jonny Blount, Louisville, a senior risk management and insurance major at Eastern Kentucky University, is among those who would dispute that stereotype. In fact, Blount, who last fall was EKU's Homecoming King, is featured prominently in an article in the March 13 issue of Bloomberg BusinessWeek headed, "Insurers Are Using Rap Videos to Make Being an Actuary Look Hip."
