Sugar Fix Initiative
Tamara Harris 88 founded Selene's Sensations, LLC in 2001, catering events for individuals, non-profit organizations, and large corporations. After losing several friends and family members to diabetes, Tamara researched methods and ingredients for baking diabetic desserts. Then, in 2007 Selene's Sensations created a line of low carb products that bridge flavor and nutrition.
Tamara's latest endeavor is the Sugar Fix initiative. It is designed to promote wellness, awareness, and enrichment in the Atlanta culinary arts community. To execute this project, she is partnering with diabetes educators, dietitians, nutritionists, and other special diet bakers to develop and deliver the Sugar Fix presentations to culinary arts faculty and students. The project aims to reach 50 culinary classes by the end of the August 2010.
Alumni Scholarship Fund
The five recipients represented diverse backgrounds and countries, reflective of the current student body. Their studies will include international law, business and the environment.
According to Dan, "The students were asked to provide transcripts, a record of their school activities, participate in an interview, and write an essay from a list of four tough questions. They all picked tough topics and wrote passionately and powerfully. The top two essays were outstanding."
If you are interested in donating to next year's fund, please contact Dan O'Grady.
The 2010 Citadel - Then and Now
The editors of the 2010 yearbook have outdone themselves. The cover is a collage of all the yearbooks dating back to the original yearbook in 1953. They said it would not have been possible without the efforts of Sheila Weaver 67 and her fabulous site e-Citadel.com. Kudos to everyone!
