Spring 2013 Scholarship & Honors Convocation

Posted: Wednesday, April 24th 2013 at 3:10 PM

HRM’s Scholarship & Honors Convocation lunch was held Friday, April 12, 2013 in the NAU du Bois Center Ballroom.

Steve Hart, general manager of the JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort, gave the keynote speech before the awards were handed out in which he discussed the importance of how people brand themselves. In the hotel and restaurant industries especially, the way one brands themselves is very important: how they relate to people, their behavior and friendliness, and even how they look plays an important role in the career field.

More than $100,000 worth of scholarships were given to over 80 students at the event to congratulate them on their academic achievements.

Several donors, including Nackard Beverage Company and Flagstaff Lodging and Restaurant Association, presented scholarships to students.

This event was a positive way to begin wrapping up the semester for these grateful students, many of whom had the opportunity to meet with their donors.
