Homecoming of Centriq TechSmart KC Alumni
Last week, Centriq Training held its Fourth Annual TechSmart KC Alumni Appreciation event. It was a night of great food, fun and amazing people!
The alumni of Centriq’s TechSmart KC program in attendance had the opportunity to participate in either typing or hardware races, trivia, a photo booth and Tina had some entertaining videos for all to enjoy. Plus, students were given Bingo cards with items they had to match to other alumni throughout the evening. At the end of the evening they could submit their card for a drawing if they got a Bingo or if they filled all of the spaces on their card (aka a Blackout!).
German Portillo, Application Developer 2015 graduate, received this year’s Alumni of the Year award. Over the past year German has worked with students in many different ways, some even before starting the program. German helped film a commercial for Univision, a Spanish television channel, and has made himself available to potential students who primarily speak Spanish. He has come in to speak with classes and help instructors mentor students. He has also reached out to Kiera regarding open positions within the organization he represents, Fan Three Sixty. Congratulations German!
The evening ended with cake and some lucky individuals taking home some great prizes! These included gift cards/certificates to restaurants around Kansas City, tickets to an upcoming Royals game and upcoming concerts.
Thank you to all of our alumni who came out to celebrate with us! We loved having you back and look forward to seeing you at more events in the future!
