May Featured Event – Last event until September!
Our Joyce Strothmann Scholarship Awards and Installation of Officers Luncheon, held on May 13, 2017, was a delightful event. While enjoying a delicious meal, our Affiliate members had the opportunity to meet and congratulate our outstanding Pima Community College scholarship winners, Sarah Bueno Caballero, Faith Capone and Alix Roa. For further info on their backgrounds and goals, please go to the “Scholarship” tab above and click on “PCC Scholarships”. We wish them the very best in pursuing their career goals!
We also installed our new VP-Programs, Corinne Kulick. Anne Sandvig, our new Secretary, was unable to attend. Congratulations to both of you!
Oh yes, once again, Carol Collins, our Affiliate member, and baker extraordinaire, baked a delicious cake to commemorate our scholars and new officers.
Congratulations to our PCC Scholarship Winners!!!
