WKU to Open Floral Shop & Design Training Center

WKU’s Board of Regents on Friday approved the purchase of 514 Regents Avenue to house the facility for almost $104,000. Once renovated, it will include a full service floral shop to serve the campus and community as well as classroom and work space to train WKU students and professional florists.

Roger Dennis, horticulture instructor in WKU’s Department of Agriculture, will direct the center and will teach three floral design classes there. Dennis usually has about 60 students each semester in his courses.

“The center will provide training for students interested in careers in floral design and hotel restaurant management,” Dennis said. “In addition we will have space to offer workshops for florists who are seeking advanced training.”

The floral shop will provide students with management experience as well. Dennis hopes the facility is open later this fall after renovations are completed.
