Charlie Crowley ’70 send me a copy of an article from the Minneapolis paper stating that his classmate from Wabash, John Wheeler ’70, is stepping down after 18 years as president of the Mall of America. John plans to move into the not-for-profit area.

The picture above shows just the layout for the Mall’s first level – there are four! The Mall employs over 11,00 employees, has 520 stores, and has enough space inside for an Amusement Park! Another way to look at it? You could fit over 30 Boeing 747s inside the Mall.

John’s been with the Mall since the beginning. In typical Wabash fashion, John will be replaced by not one but two people!

We wish John the best!
