Alumnus and COO of 46 Charter Schools Pays it Forward to The Collins College


When it comes to planting seeds, The Collins College of Hospitality Management ensures that every student is able to grow and harvest the fruit of their hard work. Not only does it strive to produce leaders in hospitality, but leaders in the world.

In the case of Kris Cheung, The Collins College hit the nail on the head. Cheung, a 2004 alumnus, is currently the chief operating officer of Success Academy Charter Schools, an organization that manages 46 schools and serves over 16,000 students in New York City.

Despite no longer working in the hospitality industry, Cheung donates regularly to his alma mater. “I had an amazing four-year experience at The Collins College and received many scholarships. I have always wanted to give back,” he explains.

For the alumnus, his college education meant more than a degree; it was his door of opportunity. Now, he wants to be that door for someone else.
