For more than four decades, Kenneth Wirth has headed First Financial Resources Ltd. In addition, he has acted as business manager of The Midtown Men, LLC, since 2005. Dedicated to his community, Kenneth Wirth has held a number of board positions over the years, including a place on the board of the Rippowam Cisqua School in Bedford, New York. This elementary and middle school provides challenging academics backed by a range of extracurricular activities.

This fall, the Rippowam Cisqua School will unveil the Upper Campus Innovation Center, which will have 2,400 square feet of space. The center will be outfitted with a wide variety of hand tools, as well as modern fabrication machines, such as 3D printers, CNC cutters, and laser cutters. In addition, a welding station will give students the chance to work with new materials and strengthen their designs. Two additional workshops will be divided from the main space with glass walls. These workshops are for small-group work or tasks that require a quiet setting.

Communal workbenches encourage collaboration among students. The entire space is designed to give students hands-on engagement and provide them with opportunities to work together to create something unique.
