Michelle Mora

Photo of Michelle MoraI want to become an event planner for social, political, and pluralistic events. I hope to create awareness on different issues in America through activism and promote conversations on diversity. I also hope to do event planning that includes social events and tie them into my mission. There are so many popular social events that happen in this country that can be utilized to engage Americans in a productive conversation about equality.

Majana Cabalit

Following graduation in May, 2005, Miss Cabalit will be moving from her home in Plattsburgh New York to Manhattan where she will begin a management training program at The Waldorf Hotel. Once she gains experience in the lodging world, she hope to eventually move to Japan and work in the Hospitality industry there.

"I tried several majors at SUNY Plattsburgh before I found the HRT Program. None of them made me feel as comfortable at the HRT department. I found it very easy to interact with students and faculty, and really enjoyed our new facilities in Sibley."

Chris Kasper

For several years Mr. Kasper has been highly involved in the resort industry. He is from Sterling Colorado and his past three summers have been spent as resident golf pro at the Lake Placid Resort in Lake Placid, NY, and the past three winters as Freestyle skiing coach for NYSEF (New York Ski Education Foundation) at Whiteface Mountain. Using this experience to benefit the HRT program, Chris has helped to organize visitations to the Lake Placid Resort over the last few semesters. Following graduation in May, 2005 Chris will begin his career as the Assistant Food and Beverage Manager for Sunday River Ski Resort in Bethel, Maine.

"The Department gave me the tools to set a goal and set standards for myself that I can use throughout my career within the hospitality industry. The professors gave me the out of class assistance and support I needed to keep on track. I hope to continue to be involved in the growth and development of the HRT program. My time in the HRT department was wonderful."

Rebecca Schroeppel

Miss Schroeppel is from Hollowville, New York, and has experience with all aspects of the restaurant industry, with restaurant management as her primary goal. Her experience ranges from her time as a sous chef at the Algonquin Restaurant in Lake George, to purchasing for Flanagan's Bar in Schroon Lake. Following her graduation in May, 2005, she has planned a trip touring Egypt after which she will return to New York and take up her duties as head bartender at the Brass Ring in Bolton Landing, New York as the head Bartender.

"The HRT program was a great experience. It opened my eyes to the different areas of business that our industry has to offer. Of the five years of school at SUNY Plattsburgh, I feel that I gained the most from my time with the HRT department."
