Cal Poly school gets $1 million pledge
POMONA - The Collins School of Hospitality Management at Cal Poly Pomona has received a $1 million pledge from local entrepreneurs Hae and Shina Park to create an Alumni Office within the academic year.
The Park's gift will be matched by university benefactors James and Carol Collins. With the University Educational Trust adding $5,000, the endowment will be worth $2,005,000.
Hae Park graduated in 1978 with a bachelor's degree in hotel and restaurant management and in 1984 with a master's degree in business administration. He owns and manages Cal Pacific Realty, which operates Bel Air Swap Meet and Pro Swap Meet.
The Parks previously established a $20,000 endowed memorial scholarship
in honor of Professor Donald Lundberg, who encouraged Hae Park to continue
his education at the Collins School of Hospitality Management despite
struggling with the English language. Lundberg taught at Cal Poly from
1973-1983. The Parks reside in Rancho Cucamonga and have two children.
Their son Eugene is a junior at the Collins School.
