Last Tuesday, more than 35 members of the College community, who contributed $100 or more over the past two years to the College, were honored during a breakfast that celebrated the inaugural Faculty/Staff Giving Circle, which is chaired by CSI Professor and CSI Foundation Ex-Officio Member Roberta Vogel, PhD. At the event, CSI President Dr. Tomás D. Morales presented faculty/staff donors with Giving Society pins.

“There are several ways to give and all of you came forward to do so,” noted Erika Hellstrom, Director of Development in her opening remarks.

President Morales presented the assembled faculty/staff donors with Giving Society pins and told them that their giving represents an outstanding example to encourage potential donors who are outside of the College community to make contributions. “By giving to the College, you directly impact our students, whether giving through the Annual Fund, establishing student scholarships, or designating gifts to the College through the United Way,” said the President.

During the event, Dr. Vogel also presented President Morales with a Giving Society pin, noting his own personal contributions to the College.
