HOUSATONIC COMMUNITY COLLEGE FOUNDATION SEEKS NOMINEES FOR ALUMNI HALL OF FAME

BRIDGEPORT – The Housatonic Community College Foundation is accepting nominations for its Distinguished Alumni Award – a prestigious award bestowed upon alumni who have achieved a high level of success in their careers, and are having a positive impact on their communities. Three alumni selected from among the nominees will be formally inducted into the Alumni Hall of Fame at the Foundation’s black tie Gala on Saturday, November 20 in the college’s Beacon Hall Event Center.  

 In addition to honoring the inductees, the Alumni Hall of Fame Gala is intended to inspire the current student population. “By honoring our distinguished alumni in this way, we hope to impress our students with the knowledge that with education, they too have the potential to achieve career success and personal fulfillment,” said Mr. Paul Antinozzi, President of the HCC Foundation.

The Hall of Fame Gala also serves as an important fundraising event for the Foundation, which provides scholarship support for the large number of HCC students requiring financial assistance. Event sponsors, alumni and attendees will have the opportunity to support the Foundation’s Scholarship Fund through sponsorships, general contributions and by purchasing tickets to the event.  

Alumni Hall of Fame nomination forms are available on the Housatonic Community College website, www.hcc.commnet.edu <http://www.hcc.commnet.edu> .  For more information, call the HCC Foundation at 203-332-5038 or e-mailmdowdle@hcc.commnet.edu . The deadline for nominations is Sept. 1, 2010.
