KCP&L Names Bloch Executive Classroom

The Henry W. Bloch School of Management at the University of Missouri-Kansas City will celebrate the official naming of their executive classroom, which has been named through a gift from Kansas City Power & Light (KCP&L).

WHEN: Feb. 22, 2013, 3 p.m. (program begins at 3:30 p.m.)

WHERE: Henry W. Bloch School of Management, room 101, on the UMKC campus (5110 Cherry Street, Kansas City, Missouri)

WHO: Terry Bassham, president and CEO, KCP&L, UMKC Chancellor Leo Morton and Bloch School Dean Teng-Kee Tan, and invited guests.

Join Terry Bassham, president and CEO, KCP&L and guests at the official naming of the executive classroom at the Bloch School. The room was recently renovated to better support executive learning. The renovations were made possible through a combination of gifts: an anonymous donor gave $200,000, with the challenge that another Kansas City organization should match the gift in order to fund the renovations. KCP&L accepted the challenge, matching the gift with another $200,000, for a total gift of $400,000.

Bloch 101 will now be known as the KCP&L Executive Classroom.

“As we move forward with our focus on experiential learning and creating spaces that will facilitate that learning in both our existing and new buildings, we look for and encourage partnerships and collaborations that will help the Bloch School reach its strategic initiatives,” Teng-Kee Tan, Bloch School dean, said.

“KCP&L has been a long-time partner with the university and the Bloch School, having put many of their future leadership through our executive programs and through service on our advisory council. I hope their example will inspire other business and civic leaders to support Bloch and be part of our journey to excellence.”
