Austin Nguyen (a #CYProud graduate of 2015 and current Cal Poly Pomona Hospitality Management student) received $2,500 from the Anaheim Orange County Hotel & Lodging Association http://aochla.org/ The AOCHLA scholarship recognizes outstanding students studying for a career in the hospitality industry. The scholarship is a national competition and unusual for a community college student to win. In addition to Austin’s AOCHLA recognition, he was also recently named Employee of the First Quarter for Hyatt Huntington Beach – quite a big deal for a property that size! Congratulations, Austin!
