Kelley Direct Honored at U.S. Military Base in Afghanistan


The U.S. Military recently recognized Kelley Direct for the educational opportunities we provide for our service men and women by flying an American flag in our honor at a base in Afghanistan. Jeff Hendricks, a current Kelley Direct student and Director of Logistics at the base, stopped by our Bloomington office to present us with the flag.

The 2014 Innovation Showcase: From Inspiration to Motivation


By Melissa Dylan

Ideas are easy.  Mine hit me mid-project.  I had just learned how to sew.  After discovering that Joann Fabrics rendered part of their product unusable by putting their logo on it I sat on the floor of my apartment and vowed, Scarlett O’Hara-style, to never shop at Joann Fabrics again.  My resolve failed the next day when I realized I had no other local options, and that shopping online for fabric is the worst.  The resolve restarted when I vowed to build the greatest chain of fabric and hobby stores of all time.  I really need to stop vowing things, because it’s clearly getting out of hand.
