Presenter Information

Hooked at the Roots

C.E. “Gus “ Whalen, Jr.

This presentation relates the real-life evolution of The Warren Featherbone Company, founded in 1883. That evolution has seen the company in agriculture, banking, philanthropy and manufacturing. Crisis has helped reinvent the company. That reinvention has often been non-linear, based not so much on what the company has done, but on what is at the core – its DNA. Today Warren Featherbone has helped create Featherbone Communiversity located in Gainesville, GA.

Featherbone Communiversity is a learning community, which provides collaborative, cross-generational learning through a unique alliance among educational institutions. It is the first of its kind in the United States. Partner institutions are Brenau University, Lanier Technical College, Georgia Tech University, the University of Georgia, and INK (Interactive Neighborhood for Kids).
