What’s New: The CHF Online Alumni Directory is live!

We’re proud to debut our new online Alumni Directory. This web-based tool will help us foster a stronger CHF community by facilitating connections among our broad range of alumni in and from the Greater Houston Region. Visit the Alumni Directory to learn about the amazing people who have participated in the Business/Civic Leadership Forum over the past twenty-plus years. Alumni can now access more detailed information about fellow Alums and maintain personal profile information by creating an Alumni Directory account.

Alumni Connection Spotlight: Ken Wells (Fall 2001) and Luis Cruz (Spring 2023)

Luis Cruz, a recent graduate and entrepreneur, connected with Ken Wells, the president of Alken Health Resources and a renowned public health expert, at a recent alumni event. Wells has agreed to join the board of Hvrs, a startup co-founded by Cruz and his business partner. Hvrs is focused on reducing food insecurity through an innovative franchise container farm model. We are confident the new Alumni Directory will help drive similar stories.
