Opportunity Scholars Luau celebrates 2019 graduates

Opportunity Scholars at the David Eccles School of Business recently held their Annual Luau to honor graduating seniors and celebrate another successful year. Families, advisory board members, donors, faculty, and Eccles School staff gathered for the celebration. Several students spoke of their educational journey, expressing gratitude for all the help they received along the way. The evening highlighted the full-circle support Opportunity Scholars embraces with keynotes from graduate Claudia Gonzalez’s mother, Thania Gonzlez, and donor, Jack Elizondo.

This year also marked a new tradition – graduates were presented with a stole, designed by Opportunity Scholar and diversity ambassador Janet Tran, to wear at commencement. The celebration featured food from Moki’s Hawaiian Grill and concluded with performances from current Scholars, and the Pacific Unity Association (PUA) club from Salt Lake Community College, many of whom plan to transfer and continue their own education at the Eccles School.
