Organizational management, GC Adult Programs
After two years at Goshen College, Krabill founded Geocel Corp.,
which produces sealants, adhesives and architectural cutting products.
While Krabill, president of the successful 28-year-old business,
has done everything from washing dishes to running the company
on a daily basis, he returned to the Goshen College Adult
Programs recently to round out his degree.
College in midlife might be daunting to some, but Krabill had a
thirst to learn again. ... A liberal arts degree rounds you. It
prepares you for many of the things that you encounter in life.
And I think it also helps prepare you to think. In many ways it
gives you much more of a broad appreciation of the things that impact
Krabill also wanted to catch up with his younger employees and see
what was new, invigorating and healthy in business.
I thought Id better get back into the system so to speak
not only to understand how people are doing business, but
to understand how younger people are doing that, said Krabill.
It probably gave me a different outlook and a fresh perspective
on how people work.
