Update on the 2018 AGM
Thanks to everyone who made it out to the 2018 AGM on June 15th. We enjoyed a lively and entertaining talk by Ethan Carlson, an MBA student who had the opportunity to visit ACCES in Kakamega, and shared his impression with us, as well as a humorous account of his own journey in education, and a new found passion for helping others. We look forward to seeing great things from Ethan!
We also heard from VJ Terzic, a UBC Sauder MBA grad who also was in Kenya working with entrepreneurs in the slums of Nairobi. VJ is currently working on a capacity and feasibility study to help ACCES in Kenya forge ahead with their plans to expand Kenyanization in the ACCES Alumni Association.
Many thanks to our board members, and especially our President Tobin Postma, who has worked particularly hard in 2018 to ensure that ACCES remains a vibrant, innovative and stable organization.
Most of all, thanks to ACCES founders Beth and George Scott, whose devotion, passion and forward thinking leadership have ensured that ACCES has gotten to the 25th year in splendid fashion, and without whom, more than 3200 Kenyans may never have gone to university, and tens of thousands of others would not have benefitted from the many programs that have been implemented over these 25 years. Those of us who rode on your coattails to help them, and those who benefitted from your extraordinary vision, we thank you!
