Berenice Cortez, catering lead in the Hoch-Shanahan Dining Commons, received the 2018 Binder Prize, which honors a member of the College’s support staff who combines a record of exceptional service with a helpful and friendly attitude toward
College community members. Recognized for her dedicated, patient and adept service, Cortez has helped provide catering services for many events during her 18 years at the College. She is also the creator of the much-loved citrus punch you’ll find at most campus gatherings. She agreed to share the recipe, scaled down to serve smaller gatherings (about 12 servings).
