2010 Alumni Harbor Dinner Cruise and Graduation Celebration
The City Tech Alumni Association presented two continuing students with scholarships in recognition of their academic excellence during its 2010 New York Harbor Dinner Cruise & Graduation Celebration in late May. The presentations were made by Alumni Association President Yvonne Riley-Tepie ‘92.
Each year, the association confers the Ruth Eldridge Memorial Alumni Award and Scott Reisenberg Scholarship Award on two accomplished students with GPAs of 3.5 or higher who have demonstrated outstanding moral character and provided commendable acts of service to the College or larger community. This year’s recipients were Antony Hamilton, construction management and civil engineering technology, and David A. Puma, nursing.
For the past 12 years, more than 200 graduating students, their alumni hosts and other guests have set sail annually from Chelsea Pier 61 on West 23rd Street in Manhattan for a fun-filled pre-Commencement celebration that features fine food as well as a live DJ and dancing in addition to the awards ceremony. The festivities are set against a spectacular nighttime view of bustling New York Harbor and the incomparable Manhattan skyline. For all aboard it’s a night to remember.
