Business notes: New director for award-winning Blue Valley program

The CAPS program aims to encourage students to develop workplace skills and experiences through an academic setting.

New Blue Valley director

Corey Mohn has been named executive director of the Blue Valley School District’s Center for Advanced Professional Studies program.

Mohn had been the director of statewide programs for NetWork Kansas since 2011. Among other things, he helped the program fund more than 400 businesses that created about 1,800 jobs.

The award-winning CAPS program aims to encourage students to develop workplace skills and experiences through an academic setting. High school juniors and seniors in the CAPS program spend part of their studying in one of four academic areas — business, business technology and media, engineering, and human services.

In 2013, CAPS received the Innovation Incubator Award from the National Business Incubators Association.

Rotary leaders

The Lenexa Rotary Club has appointed its 2014-2015 officers: President, Doug Gorham; President-elect, Amy Ruo; Treasurer, Andy Hoedl; Vice president, J.C. Burcham; and Secretary, Jerry Bowmer.

Lice device

The owners of Heartland Healthy Heads in Olathe said they’ve added a new lice-treatment device called AirAlle. The device, which has been approved by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration, reportedly kills head lice and their eggs in a single treatment, using heated air. According to Heartland, the company is the first in Kansas to mak the treatment available.

Heartland Healthy Heads, at 1725 S. Mur-Len Road, is owned by two sisters, Susan Truluck and Cherie Parker.
