Summa cum hospitality
Five Micheline stars to this year’s Salutatorian for City Tech, Keila Joann Jimenez. She loves hotels so much that she majored in lodging and is graduating summa cum laude in her class with a Bachelor’s in hospitality management. She told Standing O that every time she steps into a hotel, she “falls in love again.”
Standing O feels the same way, especially when it’s a week-long vacation with room service, pool, and spa. But we digress.
This hostess with the mostess has been on the dean’s list for all four years of her college career, received the Partridge Invitational Scholarship as well as the New York State Scholarship, and has an overall GPA of 3.92. She was chosen Salutatorian at this year’s commencement ceremonies on June 4. Standing O can say without a shadow of a doubt, “Trump and Hilton, look out — it won’t be long before Keila has you running for the nearest exit with her own luxe hotel chain.”
