Kevin Soohoo, a former grad from the MIS program at SJSU, now a CIO and giving back by teaching for us part-time, is our liaison to this group of good-hearted execs that has been sponsoring our MIS student awards now for the past several years, too. These folks are dedicated to the field and to the community and we're benefitting immensely from their generosity of time and dollars as well.
Last year we were able to give large checks to two students who both turned out to be in Computer Science. Hopefully, we'll get at least one of the two slots for an MIS student this year. Come on, MIS students, you're supposed to be superior communicators, destined to become great leaders. Show us your stuff this time.
Here's the announcement. Get it on your calendar and spend some time & thought on your essay if you want to be selected. Good luck!
