The Expo closed with not a bang, but a warm fuzzy feeling, maybe even a few tears, when the Named Scholarships were presented to nine of this year's recipients. All of the recipients are outstanding hospitality students and well on their way to a successful professional life.
The donors reported a great sense of satisfaction that they could assist these promising hoteliers of the future to reach their dreams.
You can also experience that sense of by donating any amount of money or an item for the 2019 CLIA Dollars for Scholars Online Auction Fundraiser.
