Cook’s Pest Control has 40 locations in Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, and Florida, according to its website. The company has served homeowners and businesses across the southeast of the country for more than 90 years and has received the Better Business Bureau’s International Torch Award for Ethics. The John and Lyn Cook School of Business will be inaugurated Thursday at the William H. Jones Center on the university campus at 7435 Monticello Road with an opening ceremony.

An undisclosed donation will be used to expand the business school’s program, offer scholarships, and host business leaders for workshops and seminars, according to a CIU press release.

Lyn Cook has been on the board of trustees of the CIU for 12 years, while John Cook graduated from the Ben Lips School in 1972, the Christian pre-K to 12th grade of the CIU.

“We are privileged and grateful that the Cook family recognized these qualities and invested in the CIU School of Business and its students,” said Scott Adams, dean of the CIU School of Business, in the press release. “This partnership will provide additional program resources and the Cook family’s international reputation for excellence will further enhance the placement of CIU students in corporations and government departments worldwide.”

The CIU’s School of Business is the fastest growing school on campus with more than 600 students in undergraduate and graduate courses. The latest courses on offer include a Masters in Health Administration and a Masters in Public Administration.
