Eli’s & Wright College Community thank Dr. Charles Guengerich for his Service as President of Wright College

One of the foundations of Eli’s Cheesecake is the dedication to education and life long learning—for our people and the community. For us, these goals have been achieved because of the strong leadership of Dr. Charles Guengerich, the President of Wright College. In his 12 years as President of Wright and over 30 years at the City Colleges of Chicago, Dr. G has been totally committed to his students, his faculty and staff and the community. On June 30th, Dr. G. retired from Wright and the City Colleges of Chicago. In honor of his service, Eli’s hosted a luncheon on our Farmers Market Day that also kicked off the summer program with the Chicago High School for Agricultural Sciences; programs that were all made possible because of Dr. G’s commitment to the community.

Tribute to President Charles Guengerich of Wright College in the Elmhurst College Prospect (Spring 2005)

All of us at the Eli’s Cheesecake Company are very proud of our long term partnership with Wright College. For over 15 years, all of us at Eli’s have been fortunate to have Wright College as our educational partner and supporter. For the last eight years, this partnership has been even closer as we are fortunate to be part of the Wright Campus.

In the Spring issue of the Prospect, Elmhurst College gives well deserved recognition to Chuck Guengerich, the President of Wright. We are honored that the article starts on a walk over to Eli’s University—our on-site educational center with Wright. We couldn’t state our philosophy of education than the statement in the article that:

“When you think of higher learning in America, classes in the
backroom of a (literal) cheesecake bakery may not be what springs to mind. For
Guengerich, however, the classes at Eli’s go right to the heart of his college’s
particular mission. “We’re a community college,” he says. “We’re here to serve
the needs of the community.””
