Wabash Takes Them Seriously

Trustee Jim Kilbane ’84 talks to the guys

Three Wabash students – JJ. Peller ’13, Carl Rivera ’13, and David Chew ’14 attended the reception at the Topaz Cafe in Chicago.  Before the event, they spent well over an hour talking with Jim Kilbane ’84 and one of his business partners about starting a sports bar in Crawsfordsville.

Now, pause and think that through.

That’s three college “guys” talking serious business with two owners of a very successful Chicago business.  How many places does that happen?  Not many.

But Jim Kilbane and his partner were serious about helping our guys.  Wabash takes young men seriously, as President Pat White likes to say.  Our alumni take them seriously as well.
