Andrew Wiand, Executive Director and founding fellow of enFocus, Inc. was our guest speaker at the Foundation’s Annual Holiday Luncheon December 21, 2016 at the Gillespie Center.
Mentors and students alike look forward to our annual Holiday Luncheon. Held the week after Christmas when students are home on break, the luncheon gives our directors an opportunity to catch up with their students after completing their first semester of classes.
We’re always curious to learn how our freshmen have adjusted both to their classes, and for many of them, simply being away from home for the first time. From the upperclassmen, it’s interesting hearing about the coursework as they enter their fields of study, and the details of upcoming internships. With both groups, the luncheon gives us an opportunity to get to know them a little better and make certain they’re on-track academically- all part of our mentoring process.
