CBE’s rich history celebrated the promise of the future during the first annual CBE Alumni Networking Event on September 14, 2016, in Jersey City. Seventy CBE alumni and faculty reconnected, catching up on careers, family, and their alma mater, and witnessed presentation of the first Dr. Alkis Constantinides Endowed Scholarships. In addition to the scholarships, “Dr. C” gave recipients Elizabeth McGinley (junior) and Jihyun Park (senior) each an additional $1,000 gift towards their school expenses.
Special recognition was also extended that evening to Kevin Bailey, Ph.D. GSNB ’83,’87, recipient of the department’s first Outstanding Contribution Award, for his “meritorious efforts in helping to advance the department’s mission and objectives, and for his service as a member of the External Advisory Board.”
The energy generated at the event was truly remarkable and plans are already underway for additional alumni programs. Please mark your calendars for another upcoming event:
2016 Alumni Networking Reception at the American Institute of Chemical Engineers conference, San Francisco, November 14. Please watch your mail for a formal invitation.
