After graduating from Ladue High School, Ken Hurley became interested in political science, negotiations, and other competitions. While attending this school, a popular and well-respected student discovered his true calling. He received his B.A. from Saint Louis University. In political science, he graduated Summa Cum Laude with a 3.9-grade point average.
Hurley then attended Washington University in St. Louis, earning his Juris Doctorate. Hurley competed in negotiation competitions and was a member of the Moot Court Team while attending this university. These groups helped him prepare for a career that required him to establish common ground across groups who appeared to have no relationship while working alone without his assistance.
During his time here, he learned many of the most critical things that helped propel his career forward. Patience, empathy, and working with groups with seemingly divergent views, ideas, and demands were among them. His purpose is to always do the right thing for his customers by discovering their common humanity and understanding what they can do to help one another thrive.
