Farewell from Student Council 2016 – 2017

Dear SJSU HFE Family,

It was wonderful serving and representing you all!

We had an eventful academic year! We plan to upload a ppt outlining what we have done this past year at a later date. So be on the lookout for that update!

I especially want to thank our many wonderful workshop instructors, tour hosts, judges, mentors, speakers, and resume/portfolio reviewers. Many of them are SJSU HFE alumni!

Lastly, I want to thank 2016 – 2017 SJSU HFES council for volunteering their time and skills for many SJSU HFES activities and events. They accomplished it all while juggling school, work, and personal commitments which speaks volumes about the people they are.
