Avila's Alumni Association is introducing a new networking series: Eagles Connect. These events will give you the opportunity to network with fellow Avila Eagles at alumni-owned or operated businesses throughout Kansas City. University updates will also be shared at each Eagles Connect event.
Our first Eagles Connect meeting was on Thursday, March 28, 5:30 - 7 p.m. at Maker Village KC, 606 E. 31st Street, Kansas City, MO.
Our host, Nick Ward-Bopp '09 and his friend, Sam Green, started Maker Village KC in 2016. Nick and Sam wanted a space that provided work areas, including tools and instruction, for those who want to do innovative things through old-fashioned activity. Maker Village KC is a small community wood and metal shop in Midtown.
