Mortar Board

Alumni Reception

Each year the San Diego State University and University of San Diego members of Mortar Board are invited to attend the Annual Alumni Reception, which is held to honor distinguished alumni and oustanding community members. A highlight of the event is the awarding of $15,000 in scholarship to students pursuing further discipline through graduate school.  In 2017, we honored Dr. Iris Engstrand, Professor of History at USD, and Ron Fowler, Executive Chairman of the San Diego Padres.
