Transcript Besides the tux, cummerbund and bow tie, another trademark of Par Excellence is a warm smile. Photo by Jonathan Jereb. ilton n«M*8* At Your Service At first glance, the members of Par Excellence dressed in black tuxes with bow tie and cummerbund appeared as headwaiters at some fancy restaurant. A second glance revealed them as student members of the Honor and Service Organization — Par Excellence — within the College of Hotel and Restaurant and Management. Members went through an extensive training program in all types of service: garden manager, tableside cooking, table setting, carving, and bartending. From this training, members received "loads of practical experience" which would benefit them in the hospitality field. Throughout the semester, members could be hired by the university and the community in general. All monies made from this went towards scholarships for the members, as well as to the endowed fund, which paid an annual scholarship to a non- member. In addition to working for money, Par Excellence participated in many charity events. Fall activities included working for the Cystic Fibrosis Char ity, the Alitalia Airlines 5-day event with ASTA, the American Heart Association, the Honors Banquet and the Thanksgiving Dinner for Harris County Children's Protective Agency. Trying to top the fall record, members were active in the spring with events such as the French Consulate Events, the Honors Banquet, the announcement of the endowed scholarship recipient, the President's Special Events, the Chancellor's Special Events, and the UH Donors Appreciation Dinner. Dedicating themselves to excellence in service, the members of Par Excellence not only benefited themselves, but society as well.
