Newsletter November/December 2016

We can’t believe how quickly this year has passed and how much we’ve accomplished as a Club. Here’s a quick review:

1.     Our Club has been able to receive funding and support to update our technology and access using a Cal Poly email address and website. Tracy Kinderknecht, our Secretary, is taking classes for use of the website for Club news and updates.

2.  The new Cal Poly Women’s Club Van Asperen Scholarship endowment is almost a reality and

will award a student with a teaching objective in about a year.

3.  Our interest sections are revamping and looking for new ways to better engage our

members. For example, the Morning Gourmet group is now the Lunch Bunch and will meet for lunch at a local restaurant, member’s home or a surprise location monthly at 11:30AM -

1:30PM. We hope on-campus members will better be able to join us.

4.  A new walking group begins Saturday, January 28th for a “city tour.” Families, strollers are welcome! Depending on the group, an optional brown bag lunch or restaurant may follow the walk. Route and time details will be in the January newsletter.

 

Our Holiday dinner at the San Luis Obispo Country Club is also right around the corner.  The RSVP form is in this newsletter with various dinner choices. This year the committee is organizing a silent auction during the social hour with the proceeds benefitting our scholarship fund. If you would like to donate an item for the auction, please contact Cari Moore, Rebecca Heath or Pauline Menon. The evening will also include entertainment!

 

As the year concludes, we are all thankful for your support and appreciate your continued membership. As members, your feedback and involvement have made the Club stronger and more vital. Both of us look forward to seeing you at one or all of our Club events!

 

Best,

Chris Hoover & Val Barboza

5. 2016-17 Scholarship Recipients  My           name    is           Magdalena Arechiga. I am from Ventura and transferred to

Cal Poly Fall 2014. My major is Kinesiology and if all goes as planned I will be graduating on December 17, 2016. Before coming to Cal Poly, I was  a  para-educator  at  a  school  for  children with moderate to severe special needs for 14 years. It is there that I was introduced to the many  services  that  are  provided  to individuals with special needs and became interested in physical therapy. My goal is to become a physical therapist and continue to work with individuals with  special  needs  in  hopes  of improving  their activities of daily living. I don't think I landed in this field by chance, I truly believe that this is where I belong and where I can make a positive impact   on  people's   lives.    Here  in  San  Luis Obispo, I work at the Office of the Registrar

 

and also work with a 7-yr old girl with cerebral palsy. I am so grateful for receiving this scholarship  from the Cal Poly Women's  Club as this has greatly contributed  to the success  of my  last  quarter  here  at  Cal  Poly.  From  the bottom of my heart I thank you.

 

 My name is Kiana Nafisi and

I  am  a  Business  Administration  major  with  a double concentration in Accounting and Information Systems. I am a Senior and will be graduating  in Spring  2017. After graduation,  I will be starting my career in consulting where I will learn the ins and outs of businesses and how to run one efficiently. I hope to use these skills to create my own business in the future.

 

Elsa Ruiz is a second year CPWC scholarship recipient. Elsa’s major is Kinesiology. This is the

 

note we received from Elsa: “I just wanted to express my appreciation and say thank you for rewarding me with the scholarship for this upcoming school year. It means so much to me to know that individuals such as yourselves appreciate and understand how much work and dedication I put into my schooling. This generous scholarship will enable me to purchase my textbooks for the entire year and for that I want to say thank you. My education is a major priority in my life and I immensely appreciate you supporting me in my efforts to continually
