On May 13th, 2011, the CCNY LAESA-SHPE chapter celebrated their 27th Annual End of the Year Gala Banquet. Every year they come together to celebrate another successful year in LAESA-SHPE's history. Attendees included current members, professionals, faculty members, and alumni.
In recapping their awesome accomplishments throughout the year, they also reached to SHPE-NYC to highlight some our contributions to the student chapter.
Leony Rosa (pictured on the left) was the Keynote Speaker for the event. Below are the some special words the CCNY board wanted to share with Leony.
"He holds a Masters in Electrical Engineering and he is the SHPE-NYC Finance VP and also the recipient of the SHPE 2010 Professional Role Model (SHPE Technical Achievement Recognition) STAR award. As an alumni of LAESA-SHPE, he holds a special place in all our hearts, and inspires all of us."
Every year, CCNY also hands out an "Alumni of the Year" award. Congrats to our president Edward Montenegro (pictured on the right) for the award! Below are some special words the board had to describe their alumnus.
"The following individual is a very dear friend to all us here in the Executive Board. He has been with us from the very beginning guiding us every step of the way. There are not enough words to express how we feel about this person; he is a true inspiration and a role model. His wiliness to help and give back makes him an outstanding person in our eyes. We are still amazed at how he accomplishes so much. For all these reason it warms our heart to give the Alumni of the Year Award to Edward “Superman” Montenegro."
Congrats to Leony and Edward for their recognition, and most importantly, congrats to LAESA-SHPE for 27 years of dedicated service to the Hispanic Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math students at CCNY!
