For the second year, members of the Hospitality Travel Management Association (HTMA) at the AIB College of Business in Des Moines assisted Friends of Cozumel by purchasing school supplies. Reonna Snyder, Alumni Director for AIB along with Rita McClain, instructor and leader of HTMA, led the effort along with some of the student members.
While Friends of Cozumel is made up of individuals, we find ourselves frequently being blessed by groups and associations that contribute to our efforts as well and they have made a tremendous difference for us. Our reach in terms of the number of local students that benefit from our school supply distribution has grown each year and it’s because of all the wonderful assistance we receive from everyone that this number continues to grow.Larry Pedersen is an alumni of AIB and is proud to receive support from this student group. The students enjoyed participating in this so much that they’ve requested that they be included in other projects. And guess what? We’ll find a way for them to participate!
