cardboard-boardSoCal Club Wins HAA’s Outstanding Alumni Community Award

On February 10, 2021 the Harvard Club of Southern California was honored virtually with the Harvard Alumni Association Clubs and Shared Interest Groups’ Outstanding Alumni Community Award. President Patric M. Verrone ’81 proudly and humorously accepted the award while surrounded by cardboard cutouts of board members, instantly dubbed “the Cardboard Board.” Former Club and HAA president Cynthia Torres ’80, MBA ’84 presented the award and read a citation which noted: “Serving a diverse community of more than 16,000 alumni across a sprawling and densely populated region, the Harvard Club of Southern California creates and maintains alumni engagement opportunities of impressive scope while remaining ever nimble and responsive…. With deep commitment to Harvard, the Harvard Club of Southern California builds resilient bonds across generations of alumni.” We thank the HAA for this award and thank all of those in our community for making our Club all that it is.
