WKU's Gordon Ford College of Business is expanding
The Gordon Ford College of Business received a generous donation from local building owners to help meet the needs of their growing program.
John and Carolyn Ridley, owners of the Pushin Building, donated 5,000 square feet of space to the college of business.
"We believe in education," said Mr. Ridley. "The gift of education is an investment in our future...we are grateful to be able to pay it forward by supporting the Gordon Ford College of Business."
The MBA Program plans to use a renovated portion of the space to host classes, meetings, and training seminars.
The Gordon Ford College of Business Coordinator says the space will be very beneficial for the program.
"This building allows us to get away from the office on-campus a little bit, and come to the downtown area so we can work more closely with the business community," said Stacey Gash.
A ribbon cutting ceremony was held on August 8 and immediately after, community members were able to tour the building.
