BWHS to dedicate new business center

Saturday September 28, 2013 6:49 PM

Bishop Watterson High School, located at 99 E. Cooke Road in Columbus, will dedicate its new business center classroom at 5:30 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 29, in honor of the graduates who made it possible: Mike Kenney '93 and Nick King '93, who are entrepreneurs in the area of commercial real estate.

The Kenney-King Business Center is a state-of-the-art facility designed to simulate a real-world business environment, complete with permanent white boards, two flat-screen televisions, high-speed wireless internet, a conference room, a stock ticker and innovative work tables designed for collaboration.

Kenney and King, owners of Preferred Living, began working with Bishop Watterson in 2011 on this project to give back to their alma mater. In addition, BWHS Business Department Chair Sheri Cook worked with Wayne Chang, chief financial officer at Preferred Living, to develop an Entrepreneurship and Innovation curriculum.
