Registration and check-in begin promptly at 11:30 a.m. Our speaker will be Dr. Bob Small, professor emeritus and former Dean of the Collins College of Hospitality Management.

Scholarship News

 

A big THANK YOU to everyone who supported our first Pace Setter Scholarship!  We actually raised enough to fund two $500.00 scholarships!  The winners will be selected late March and announced at the April general meeting.  As a reminder, the scholarships will go to an undergrad or graduate student who has a record of some campus volunteer involvement and a minimum of a 3.0 GPA.  The recipient will be screened by the Financial Aid Office and selected by two Pace Setters, one of whom will be a Board member.

We will continue to seek donations as this will be an annual award.  Your general donations to Pace Setters are always welcome and we thank all of you who help out in this way.  If you want your donation to support the Pace Setter Scholarship then when you make your check out to Pace Setters/Cal Poly Pomona Foundation you must indicate “scholarship” on the memo line.  We are looking into ways to raise funds in addition to donations but in the meantime, we appreciate your participation in this effort. 

Students interested in applying for a Pace Setters scholarship can contact the Financial Aid Office for more information.
