Volume 7, Issue 5 • November/December 2012 A Message from Our Chairman To the Triton College Community: As the holiday season approaches, the spirit of giving fills us all. This was especially true on Wednesday, Nov. 14, when more than 500 friends and supporters of Triton College came together at the Triton College Foundation President’s Reception to honor outgoing Foundation Board President David King. Dave served as Board President for 12 years and his tireless efforts on behalf of Triton brought in well over $500,000 in donations and scholarships during his tenure. The evening was a huge success, raising more than $40,000 for the Foundation and providing an enjoyable evening for all. A special thanks goes to the students and faculty of the Triton Hospitality Program, who provided beverage service, food and prepared all the delicious desserts, as well to our Triton Faculty Jazz Trio – Richard Armandi, Ray Koehler and Steve Magnone – who provided the evening’s musical entertainment. Last but not least, a huge thank you to the following Triton area restaurants for providing the delicious food for the evening: Clavio’s Eatery, The Elmcrest Banquets by Biancalana, Maria’s Mexican Restaurant, Pescatore Palace Restaurant and Banquet Hall and Royal Garden Banquets’ Saranecki Bros. Catering, Inc. Register at Triton College in one day! Receive access to all of your registration needs in one day at Super Saturday on Jan. 12. While he has stepped down as President, I am pleased to tell you that Dave King will remain as a member of the Foundation Board, and Triton is fortunate to have him still working on our behalf. The new Foundation President, Tom Olson, is certainly no stranger to the Triton community. A lifelong Triton district resident, Tom recently retired from his position as Triton’s Executive Director of Marketing after 30 years of service. While Dave is certainly a tough act to follow, I believe Tom is up to the challenge of leading the Foundation to great things in the future. I hope you enjoy this issue of Page One. Inside, you will find many stories of student success and programs and initiatives that demonstrate our commitment to serving the Triton community. You’ll learn about steps we’re taking to help students who come to us less than college ready, cultural heritage events you may be interested in, services we provide for veterans, and much more. I look forward to hearing how Triton College can serve you. Please feel free to contact me through the Triton College Office of the President at (708) 456-0300, Ext. 3201 or e-mail In closing, let me wish you a peaceful and joyous holiday season!
