Now, if you have any doubt on the quality of young people available to you and your firm, let me introduce you to two Texas Tech students who you'd be lucky to hire: Joshua Mungavin and Irene Quartey-Papafio. I met Mungavin and Quartey-Papafio at the January 2008 Technology Tools for Today conference I organized with fellow Morningstar writer Joel Bruckenstein--the third in a series of annual conferences designed to show independent advisors how to maximize practice automation and efficiency. (For information on the conference that just ended, visit www.virtualofficenews.com). These two students are taught by Deena Katz, still functional as chairman of her Coral Gables, Fla., firm of Evensky & Katz, but perhaps better known these days as an associate professor in the personal financial planning division at Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Texas.
