Education is a Key Component of our Mission

“The function of education is to teach one to think intensively and to think critically. Intelligence plus character – that is the goal of true education.”
-Martin Luther King, Jr.

Since our founding, more than anything else, donating our time for the furthering of our industry’s students, junior managers and continued education for our leaders has been a foundational pillar and passion of KK&W.

Our commitment to education remains strong.  Since 1996, KK&W has collectively donated countless hours to industry-wide education endeavors and that continues to grow each year in addition to providing significant financial support to The Club Foundation and CMAA.
