The 15th Annual Skyline College President’s Breakfast, now open for registration, will be held on Thursday, March 19, 2015 from 7:00 a.m. – 8:30 a.m. at the South San Francisco Conference Center located at 255 South Airport Boulevard in South San Francisco. The breakfast is hosted by Skyline College President Regina Stanback Stroud, Ed.D. and the Skyline College President’s Council.
This free event brings the community together for networking, a delicious breakfast, and presentations showcasing the innovative projects supported by the President’s Innovation Fund (PIF) and the students they benefit. Attendees will be given the opportunity to donate to the President’s Innovation Fund to support current and future projects benefiting students.
Since its inception in 2001, the President’s Breakfast has made possible more than $308,000 in grants from the President’s Innovation Fund. To date, 133 programs have been supported by the PIF. Donations to the fund have enabled Skyline College faculty and staff to develop many of the dynamic programs and services that continue to benefit students and our community today.
The President’s Breakfast program will feature students and alumni sharing their personal stories of transformation through their involvement in some of the many programs which were originally funded by the President’s Innovation Fund and are now integral to Skyline College student experience including CIPER, Kababayan, YEP, ASTEP, Honors Transfer Program and Hermanos y Hermanas.
The featured speaker will be Damien Guzman, an alumnus of Skyline College’s Honors Transfer Program, who subsequently transferred to and graduated from Cornell University and now serves as a President’s Council member. The program also includes a live performance by Skyline College students performing excerpts from the musical “Grease.”
