trade organization has grown from 4 members to over 1000 members. NSMH prides itself
on preparing minority students to be leaders in the hospitality industry. The organization
provides its members with a competitive advantage through programs and conferences,
networking opportunities, scholarships, and career development services. NSMH is comprised
of over 75 chapters at colleges and universities throughout the United States and
During the last academic year, the Kemmons Wilson School chapter made great strides
by adopting the mission to emphasize the promotion of diversity and community outreach.
Student members attended the national conference, various activities and events were
hosted, and chapter membership significantly increased to include a diverse group
of students whose ethnicities include: African American, Asian, Caucasian and Latino.
The Kemmons Wilson School chapter will continue growing in scope and size while upholding
its commitment to diversity.
