SAN JOSE STATE UNIVERSITY MEET AND GREET FOR NEW PRESIDENT It isn’t often you get the chance to have a personal conversation with a university president.  But in early January Gilroy and Morgan Hill business and civic leaders had exactly that opportunity with the new, visionary president of San Jose State University, Dr. Mary Papazian. Always the perfect hosts Mike and Mary Cox opened their lovely Morgan Hill home for an engaging evening of conversation and thought with local SJSU alumni and supporters.  A California native, Papazian spoke passionately about her commitment to learn from and partner with local communities, “Spartans influence life locally and globally in ways seen and unseen. Our potential, when we work together is limitless.” Mount Madonna School Mike Cox, Dr. Mary Papazian, Eleanor Tate and Mary Cox. environmentally friendly Campus Tour April 19, 9:30am Art & Play in the Pre & K!
