Ken is the Founder and Executive Director of The Abraham Lincoln Center for Character Development in Wheaton Illinois. Ken became involved in character education through the Healthy DuPage-sponsored Character Development Coalition as a part-time "on-loan executive” from his position as Director of Training at ServiceMaster and most recently, ARAMARK.
