Dear Collins Alumni,
I would like to take this opportunity to first congratulate the 2010-2011 graduates and welcome them to The Collins College alumni family.
This fall marks the three-year anniversary of the revival of the college’s alumni program, and what an amazing journey it has been! The newly elected executive board is excited to take this momentum to shape the future of the Collins Hospitality Society.
I would like to thank the alumni and friends of the college who have participated and/or sponsored the Fleming’s Wine Dinner Fundraisers and the 1st Annual Scholarship Classic. With your involvement over the past three years, the society has raised more than $10,000 from these events, which has allowed us to start the Collins Hospitality Society Scholarship Endowment. This endowment will provide scholarships to undergraduate students who demonstrate a commitment to academic excellence. We strongly believe scholarships can help shape the lives of future hospitality leaders by easing the cost of the student’s education.
The board is dedicated to advancing The Collins College nationwide by building our network of proud alumni. We do this by hosting a variety of events and by creating an active online community through LinkedIn and Facebook. With more than 3,800 alumni worldwide, we hope you will experience the lifelong benefit of our network by joining the Collins Hospitality Society, our chapter of the Cal Poly Pomona Alumni Association.
In closing, I am honored to be your president for a second term. I look forward to another year and hope to see you at an event soon!
All the best,
Steven Senft '98
