IN SUPPORT OF STUDENT SCHOLARSHIPS AND
THE EDUCATIONAL MISSION OF THE COLLEGE
Hostos Community College Celebrates 55th Anniversary, Raises More than $425,000
The pride and determination that Eugenio María de Hostos Community College’s founders harnessed to galvanize support for the College’s charter in 1968 is alive and well at the College, and it was evident throughout the College’s 55th Anniversary Gala. On April 26, more than 330 friends of the College gathered at the beautiful Surf Club on the Sound to celebrate its remarkable impact and to show their support for Hostos students by contributing more than $425,000 to bolster scholarships and enhance academic services. Hostos has preserved its founders’ vision for more than half a century, and it has been a bridge to opportunity and socioeconomic mobility for thousands of New Yorkers.
