WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - A new space where entrepreneurs can come and work on their businesses will get a new operations manager.
Purdue graduate and entrepreneur Ashley Scott is the new operations manager for the co-working space 'MatchBOX' in Lafayette.
Scott has previously worked as an assistant director in Purdue's Office of Admissions and has worked remotely with a similar space in New York.
Scott is a Fort Wayne native who said she's always felt welcomed and supported in Lafayette and wants to do the same for others.
"This was my way to give back," said Scott. "I really have benefited greatly from the support I've received here. Now, it's an opportunity to take my past experiences and all of those things I've learned along the way and support others as we take this movement of entrepreneurship in the city to the next level."
Construction is continuing on MatchBOX and is scheduled to open at the end of the year, or early in 2014.
As Purdue classes end for the semester, campus bar representatives and local law enforcement met to discuss what they noticed during the semester.
More than 45 kids got a special Christmas gift from the mayor of Lafayette.
Authorities make two arrests Monday night in connection with a counterfeiting case.
