During Catholic Schools Week, the Tommy Woycik ’85 Institute for Innovation and Entrepreneurship proudly welcomed Donovan Greening ’16 to the All-School Mass to address the entire student body as part of the Honorable Man program at Brother Rice.
The morning started with a tour of campus guided by Director of Alumni Affairs Dan McGrath ’96. Donovan was able to visit classrooms and spend time with students for interactive conversations about being an honorable man, how he got started as a very young entrepreneur, and how he established himself as a business professional. He provided insight into the drive and determination required to find success in starting a business.
Before Mass began at St. Regis, Donovan addressed the entire student body, sharing reflections on what it means to be an honorable man and how he has applied those traits in his life. He was brought up with strong moral values along with character-building guidance during high school, which prepared him for college and beyond in his personal, spiritual, and professional life.
His tenacity and innovative thinking has garnered a fulfilling career, having run multiple lucrative companies since the young age of fifteen. Donovan is currently the President and Founder of The Greening Corporation United – a digital agency that focuses on highly competitive search engine marketing and consulting. In 2017, his firm helped generate several million dollars in revenue for his clients while also aiding victims of mesothelioma and lung cancer in finding justice.
Brother Rice High School is a National Blue Ribbon School and ranked the #1 Catholic High School in Michigan for four consecutive years. A proud private educational institution located in Bloomfield Hills.
