Spotlight on: 2019 Outstanding Alumni Award recipient Michael Tomars '87!

Michael serves as Branch Chief of the SEC based in San Francisco where he was recently recognized for his outstanding effort on two national initiatives in the fin-tech and digital asset spaces.

Since graduating from Menlo, Michael has stayed deeply connected to the college. For several years he was a member of the SBA advisory board. Today, he is a member of the Provost’s Advisory Council and the Finance Advisory Board. He also comes back to campus regularly as a guest lecturer, guest speaker for panel discussions, and this past summer he mentored a Menlo student.

We are so grateful for Michael's continued support of the Menlo College community and we’re proud to recognize his involvement this OAKtoberFest!

The fall 2019 semester is off and running at Menlo College. If you have visited us recently, you saw that we're making significant improvements to our campus. Thanks to generous donors, we are replacing asphalt with pavers throughout campus, and improving our landscaping (92 new trees so far, and we're not done!). Construction - it's progress, but yes, it's noise and inconvenience. Have patience, as it'll be worth it! We look forward to welcoming all members of the Menlo College community at this year's OAKtoberFest, October 19, when we'll reveal our latest campus improvements. Plan on it!

George Hofstetter is a rising Sophomore but has already been making impacts on Menlo’s campus and in his local communities.

George is the current President of Menlo’s first-ever Social Justice Club, Vice President of Black Leaders on Campus (BLOC), a member of the Oaks Innovation Club, and a founding member of Menlo’s very first Tedx Menlo College: This Is America.

At age 16 George founded his tech company, George Hofstetter Technologies Inc. in which he intends to help create opportunities for children of color to enter the tech industry, converting them from “consumers to innovators.” His latest project is UpToCode, a free online curriculum that helps minority students from middle to high school expand their knowledge in entrepreneurship and innovation.

We are very excited to see what innovations George comes up with next and Menlo is very excited to support him on his journey of igniting his potential.

For more information, about George's company and future projects, visit his website George Hofstetter Technologies Inc. : https://www.georgehofstettertechnologies.com/
