Bonnie Carroll, founder, chairperson and chief knowledge officer of Information International Associates, Inc., and BOV chair, will preside over the Fall BOV meeting, Sept. 21-22. On Friday evening, Sept. 21, BOV members will also participate in the annual CCI Scholarship Donor Appreciation Dinner to be held at the Holiday Inn World’s Fair Park. The dinner recognizes the many generous scholarship donors who have enabled hundreds of CCI students to realize the dream of obtaining a college education.
The mission of CCI’s BOV is to serve in a collaborative relationship with the leadership and faculty of CCI to improve the educational opportunities of students and advance the reputation of the College’s respective schools. Members work as ambassadors to the information and communication industry, potential donors, prospective students and the University as a whole. BOV members contribute their professional expertise and perspective, time and energy, and direct and indirect financial support and lend their influence to the success of the program.
