April 20, 2016 – Program Dinner

Our special guest today is Cynthia Swartz.

She will be telling us about her involvement with the Health Sciences Charter School.

The Health Sciences Charter School has about 330 students in ninth through 11th grades. A 12th-grade class will begin next year, bringing enrollment to 480, said Principal Hank Stopinski. The school’s partners include Blue-Cross Blue Shield of Western New York, Catholic Health, Communications Workers of America, Community Health Center of Buffalo, Erie Community College, Erie County Medical Center, Independent Health, Kaleida Health Systems and Roswell Park Cancer Institute.

The school’s mission is to provide an academically challenging learning environment that provides the skills necessary for careers in the health care industry, said Cynthia Schwartz, secretary on the school’s board of trustees and author of “The Miracle on Ellicott Street,” a book about the transformation of the long-vacant building into the new school.

Program dinners are scheduled on the 3rd Wednesday of the month. They are catered by Applewood’s Café.

Cost per person is $17.00—payable by check or cash to The College Club.

5:15 PM—Wine and Hors d’oeuvres;

6:00—Dinner followed by our program
