Thanks to generous donors, the main business classroom at Valor looks more like a university business classroom these days. As students walked in this fall, they were met with new carpet and paint. The desks and chairs were upgraded to be more mobile allowing for the configuration of the room to be a traditional classroom or conference room style. A ticker tape, a real-time data feed of the New York Stock Exchange, runs along the back wall. A scripture adorns most of the west wall, opposite artwork of all the continents.
Mr. Dave Haar, Business department chair stated, “We wanted to have a university feel, while still affirming our perspective that business can be used to help the poor and needy around the world. It is our desire to make the Valor vision: to prepare tomorrow's leaders to transform the world for Christ, a reality through students' future careers in business. Business is more than just making money -- it is making the world a better place.”
