Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship carries Douglas Greene's name

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KRCU) - Southeast Missouri State University’s Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship now officially bears the name of Douglas C. Greene.

Mr. Greene and his wife Heather are successful businesspeople who have assisted the University in with various scholarships and programs, including the Multi-Media Center in Kent Library.

Himself an entrepreneur, Greene has provided financial assistance to the Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship. He has also undertaken the role of guest speaker and motivator at the Center.

“I’ve subscribed to this giving a hand up rather than a hand out. And so we have sponsored scholarships here for deserving students in entrepreneurialism, and we have a plan down the road to do even more. And what is great is to come back and meet these students,” Greene said.

A dedication ceremony was held on Friday to honor Douglas and Heather Greene.
