Westminster College students who are part of the Westminster College Analyst Program will present an analysis of the global coffee market at 7 p.m., Tuesday, Feb. 21, via Zoom.

Dave Nesbit ’79, retired chief administrative officer/finance and managing director for the Bank of New York Mellon, will chair the meeting and serve as lead judge, overseeing a diverse panel of professionals for the discussion.

Rich Beard ’95, senior vice president and treasurer of Matthews International, Murrysville, Pa.
