Book Awards for High School Juniors

Each year, the Cornell Club of Greater Miami and the Florida Keys has awarded books to South Florida area high school students of high academic achievement who have demonstrated leadership and academic excellence.

Schools are invited to participate by nominating a member of the current junior class who has demonstrated the attributes of the award. The faculty of each school determines the recipient for their school. Several different criteria are used to select which high schools are invited. The book award is a way to encourage greater interest in Cornell by prospective students and to increase our visibility.

This year, the following high schools are participating:

Felix Varela High, Miami Sunset High, Miami Palmetto High, Alonzo and Tracy Mourning High, Coral Gables Senior High, Miami Edison Senior High, Miami Country Day School, South Miami Senior High, Ransom Everglades School, Dr. Michael Krop Senior High, MAST Academy, Samuel Scheck Hillel Community Day School, Miami Killian Senior High, Carrolton School of the Sacred Heart, Belen Jesuit Preparatory School, Christopher Columbus High School, Our Lady of Lourdes Academy, Palmer Trinity School, Design & Architecture Senior High (DASH), Mater Academy, and Riviera Preparatory School.

The book awarded to each student is The Elements of Style by William Strunk, Jr., and E. B. White, fourth edition.

CAAAN members and other Alumni are encouraged to present the awards at the schools’ Spring award celebrations in May and June and in the Fall in August and September.  If you wish to participate in presenting the awards, please contact Juan Alayo at jalayo@alayo.com

Admitted Student Reception

CAANThe Cornell Club of Easter Florida, Greater Miami, Fort Lauderdale & Boca Raton

Admitted Student Reception

Dear Cornell Club of Miami CAAAN Supporters,

Our committee received a total of 328 applications this season (includes Early Decision candidates), surely one of the highest applicant pools I have seen in my 7 years as CAAAN Chair. We were able to meet with nearly a quarter of these applicants, which is never enough, but given the number of volunteers we have at any given time which fluctuates quite a bit throughout the year given the nature of Miami’s very transient nature, we have done a great job. Many of us took on more than 5 applicants which is amazing!

The decision for admission will be sent to the candidates by March 28. Then, applicants will need to submit their enrollment decisions by May 1. Thus, this gives us an opportunity in April to meet with the admitted students before they make their final decision.

We are so fortunate that Helene Lindenfeld (a future member of the CAAAN Hall of Fame), has volunteered to host the Admitted Student Reception at her residence

Location: At the home of Helene Lindenfeld ’79 and entering AAP student Ariella Lindenfeld ’18 (Address will be provided in registration confirmation e-mail.)

Date: Sunday, April 6, 2014; 3 pm – 5 pm

Harvard Business School Club of South Florida: Seeking Nonprofits Who Would Like Strategic Help

HBS

Community Partners (CP) is a program of the Harvard Business School Club of South Florida (HBSCSF). Its mission is to create constructive partnerships between Harvard Business School alumni and nonprofit organizations in the South Florida community that are seeking assistance with business and management issues. We fulfill that mission by organizing teams of HBS alumni volunteers to provide pro bono consulting advice through well defined consulting projects addressing specific strategic issues.

The work is carried out by small teams (a project leader and 3 or 4 members) working closely together with the leadership and management of the nonprofit organizations in projects lasting 3 to 4 months. CP will work with the client organization to tailor each project to its specific needs. Projects have to be well defined with a clear scope and output.

The CEO or President and the Board of Directors of the nonprofit organiz ation play a critical role in the success of the CP projects. The client organization leadership is expected to invest the necessary time to meet with the project team on an ongoing basis and provide the required support and information to ensure the effectiveness of the consulting process. This involves at the outset outlining the history and objectives of the organization, helping the team understand the issues to be addressed, introducing the appropriate staff members and providing access to all relevant data. In order to carry out these activities effectively we have set a parameter for the client nonprofit organizations of a minimum $500,000 annual budget and 5 full time staff or equivalent.

By donating time and management skills, HBS alumni offer nonprofits access to the kind of professional expertise they may otherwise not afford. In return our alumni volunteers are given the opportunity to serve the community in which they live or work in a truly meaningful w ay.

If you are an organization interested in participating in this program, please click on the following link to complete our Community Partners Project Application Form:https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/3B6HB35. The deadline for completed applications is Friday, April 4, 2014.

The HBSCSF will review the applications and make its first selection in April 2014, based on the characteristics of the organization and the proposed project. This will be followed by meetings with the leadership of the selected institutions to get a deeper understanding of the organization and project goals and discuss the consulting process.

This will result in the final selection of the nonprofit organizations that will participate in the 2014 program. The HBSCSF will then introduce the chosen institutions and associated projects to our alumni volunteers. The last step will be to ensure the proper staffing of the teams, upon which the projects will be launched in June 2014.

If you have any questions please contact David Hausmann, who is the leader of the HBSCSF Community Partners activities at david@dhausmann.com.
