Seeking volunteers for Star of Hope “Activities for Teens” Sessions

As part of its local community outreach the MIT Club of South Texas will host a series of educational enrichment programs for teen residents of the Star of Hope.  The programs will be held on Friday evenings at the Women & Family Emergency Shelter and Transitional Living Center in Houston.

Initial program topics include a demonstration by a robotics competition team, current direction of space exploration and technology careers in 2025 (medical, industrial, military, etc.). Each program would be a one-evening presentation with an engaging multifaceted curriculum designed for youth. Volunteers are needed for curriculum development as well as presenters including professionals to offer testimonials and encouragement.  Alumni may volunteer for either curriculum development or curriculum presentation tasks.
All participants in the presentations required to complete a Star of Hope Volunteer Application for advance clearance. Those seeking additional information or interested in joining a program night please contact David Brown at david-b@mithouston.org

MIT CoSTx Golf Update

Dateline May 31, 2015

MIT’s local golfing alums reconvened on May 23 for an anticipated eighteen holes at the Cypresswood Traditions Course in north Houston.  The weather held up well for 15 holes, then the skies let loose, forcing abandonment of play.  Al Tervalon ’65, Peter Tomlinson CH ’67, Murat Ocalan ME ’11, and Greg Turner ’74 had a great time until then, and a thorough drenching after.

The next golf event will be June 20, 2015.  We are taking a “field trip” to play the highly rated Wolfdancer Golf Course located at the Hyatt Lost Pines Resort near Bastrop. We have invited the MIT Club of Austin and San Antonio to join us.  For those interested in learning more, please contact Greg Turner at golf@mithouston.org  If you are not on our email distribution list but would like to be, also contact Greg Turner. 

You can always read about the latest CoSTx Golf news on our dedicated Golf webpage.
