Sky Rappoport

Then: To get things off the ground, reach for the sky. That is what the new CSUMB Alumni Association chose to do when they named Sky Rappoport as their founding president. Getting things off the ground was nothing new to Rappoport. He started classes at CSUMB in 1995, our first academic year. He earned his degree in Management and International Entrepreneurship as a member of our first graduating class in 1997.

Now: From CSUMB, Pappoport decided to start his own business, SR Management, a company that manages small businesses, raises funds for nonprofits, and coordinates special events. He is also the Finance Manager for Pacific Repertory Theater.

The answer is a resounding "yes." Nikki Sannicolas is
