TIM School’s 2015 Spring & Summer Graduation Ceremony

On Friday, May 15, 2015 TIM International, Inc. sponsored the 2015 Spring and Summer TIM Graduation Reception held at the TIM School.  It was a night to remember for the graduates, with family and friends in attendance, as their most memorable moments were shared.  Chelsey Borge was selected as the TIM class speaker giving a heartwarming speech to her fellow peers while thanking all those who helped get them where they are today.  TIM graduates were also fortunate to have keynote speaker and TIM alumnus Mr. Ren Hirose (’85), General Manager of the W Scottsdale Hotel in Arizona. 


Mr. Hirose spoke about how he became successful in the industry and gave the new graduates some valuable advice for their careers.  He talked about humility, hard work, teamwork, and community.  He advised the graduates to learn from their failures; to work hard and take on challenging tasks;  to be willing to collaborate and help your colleagues along the way; and to give back to your alma mater and/or community, which is extremely fulfilling and provides you with networking opportunities.  He also stressed the importance of finding balance, “work hard, play hard”, in order to be effective on your way to the top.


Graduates and guests were treated to a memorable slideshow presentation followed by a reception.  Altogether, there were 68 graduates from TIM for Spring and Summer.  Taylor Roa and Stacie Tamaru were selected as student marshals to represent and lead the TIM graduating class in the UH commencement ceremony.  On behalf of the TIM alumni and School, we would like to congratulate all of the TIM graduates and wish them success in everything that they do!
