Johnson and Wales alumni launching local chapter

POSTED: 07/12/11 4:21 PM

GREAT BAY – The St. Maarten chapter of the Johnson and Wales University Alumni Association will be officially launched on Saturday at Privé Sky Lounge between 6:00 p.m. and 9:00 p.m. Deputy Prime Minister Theodore Heyliger will be presented with a Success Board at the launch to mark the success he’s had in his career. The award also serves to inspire prospective and current students and alumni to excel.

Saturday’s launch is open to the 200 Johnson and Wales University graduates that live here and the aim of the new association is to bring them together and connect them with the 85, 000 alumni living around the world and 17, 000 students on the university’s four campuses. Another aim is setting up a scholarship fund for local students who want to attend Johnson and Wales.

Alumni interested in attending the meet and greet should call Karen Cadogan on 527-3600 or Carmen Lake on 520-0015. They can also register online at http://alumni.jwu.edu by clicking on the events tab.

Johnson & Wales University history with St. Maarten dates back to the early 1980s when it started as a night school for employees at the now closed Mullet Bay Resort and Casino. The university then joined with the University of St. Martin to offer Associates Degrees and a chance for young scholars to transfer to any Johnson & Wales University for the Bachelor of Arts Degree.
