October 22, 2014 -Eighty nine King’s College students were selected to attend the 10th annual McGowan Business Forum, which was held recently in New York City.
This year’s Forum provided the students mentoring and networking opportunities with 38 King’s alumni and other professionals, followed by a dinner and the presentation of the inaugural Father James Lackenmier, C.S.C., Award for Achievement and Leadership.
King’s College will begin offering classes this fall in two new graduate education programs, a master’s of education degree in special education and an endorsement program in Instructional Coaching.
The master’s degree program in Special Education will require 10 three-credit courses for completion and is designed to compliment a Pennsylvania Department of Education approved Autism Spectrum Disorder Endorsement Program which began two years ago.
King’s College has established an annual award for achievement and leadership in the name of Father James Lackenmier, C.S.C., seventh president of the College.
The Reverend James Lackenmier, C.S.C., Award for Achievement and Leadership will be presented yearly in conjunction with the McGowan School of Business Forum. A highlight of Father Lackenmier’s 18-year presidency (1981-1999) was the establishment of the William G. McGowan School of Business at King’s in 1992.
