President Mitch Daniels' HK visit 2015

It was such a great success for last Monday's reception hosted by the Purdue Alumni Association for Boilers in HK during President Mitch Daniels' visit!  More than 50 of us has joined and learn the latest Purdue updates from President Daniels.   Special thanks to Mary Dennis of PAA, for the coordination and support all along, together with the endless support from PCHK chairman, Hon. Charles Mok, as well as our committee member Nicky, Ben and Billy to make such a marvelous and memorable evening!
On Tuesday (Oct 27), alumni and commercial leaders joined President Daniels for HKGCC's seminar on "An updates for America."  President Daniels has shared his views on some of the recent topics, from university autonomy to upcoming US President runs.

Thanks again for the great support for those who joined! For those who couldn't make it during President Daniels visit, looking forward to meeting you all at our Thanksgiving dinner on Nov. 28!  Stay tune for more updates!

Hail Purdue!
