Historic “House B” to be renamed

Author: Cal Powell

The historic “House B” is getting a facelift – and a new name – courtesy of the Charles Schwab Foundation, which has committed $575,000 toward a major renovation project within the college’s Financial Planning Research Center.

In addition to the Schwab commitment, three Schwab-affiliated firms in Atlanta – SignatureFD, TrueWealth Management and Homrich Berg Wealth Management – have committed a total of $100,000 to the project.

One of the original home management houses, the new Charles Schwab Financial Planning Center will provide world-class facilities for training the next generation of financial planning professionals. A formal ribbon-cutting ceremony is scheduled for April 11.

Shown here during recent prep work are Dean Fox with representatives from the department of financial planning, housing and consumer economics: Department head Sheri Worthy, faculty member Kenneth White, graduate students Kimberly Watkins and Dana Carney and faculty member Joseph Goetz.
