Alumni News: Chile’s Matamala Receives Outstanding Columbia University Alumnus Award
October 30, 2019
In late October, the Alumni Club Chile hosted its annual Cocktail Party to honor renowned journalist Daniel Matamala (JN ’12) with its Outstanding Columbia University Alumnus award.
Currently the senior anchor at CNN Chile, Matamala is also an op-ed contributor for local newspaper La Tercera and the author of six nonfiction books regarding political and economic power in Chile.
Last year’s award went to the distinguished economist Joseph Ramos (CC '59, SEAS '60, SIPA '64, GSAS '68).
Established at the beginning of 2018, the Columbia Alumni Association of Chile represents the 373 alumni living in the country. Each year the Global Center sponsors one alumnus’ trip to the Columbia Alumni Leaders Weekend in New York. This year, alumna Magdalena Engel (SIPA ’05) attended the event and received the “Most Revitalized Club in FY19” award on behalf of the Chile association.To see the Pictures Gallery click here.
