14 years as an elementary school teacher, ending with a stint teaching
kindergarten at Jeffersonville’s Bridgepoint Elementary School, Kye
Hoehn realized she was ready for a change. The Louisville-Southern
Indiana area needed additional event facilities because “when planning
large affairs, there weren’t a lot of location choices”. Kye began
traveling to cities including Philadelphia, Chicago and Indianapolis
to teach three-week graduate courses for teachers, and she took
advantage of the opportunity to investigate facilities in those cities
before opening her own business.
Renovations for KYE’S began in April 1994, and Kye stopped teaching
the following January. KYE’S opened in late February 1995. From the
planning stages to it’s opening, renovations took about a year. By
opening day, sixty-nine events were already booked by clients who had
seen only the original buildings and architectural renderings of the
promised renovations, giving those clients who shared Kye Hoehn’s
vision a special place in her heart. Two and a half years later, in
November 1997, she opened KYE’S II. Now, Kye says, “I love what I
do. I love working with people, planning what they dream and having
it turn out better than they ever imagined.”
