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.
The Forum’s location rotates between Philadelphia, New York and Wilkes-Barre.
