“I am very pleased to announce that our CAPA Scholars Award Competition received eighteen applications from a very diverse pool of students, each with excellent educational backgrounds. It was very difficult to select only three winners to receive scholarships as every applicant is deserving of an award. Below are the names of these exceptional students and where they hail from in Michigan. The announcement of this year’s scholarship winners will take place at CAPA’s Asian Festival on July 27, 2019, at Madison Place, Madison Heights, 876 Horace Brown Drive.”

“Michigan’s Council of Asian Pacific Americans is committed to promoting the educational advancement of APA youths as well as fostering their involvement through leadership opportunities in our local communities. It is because of these goals that I chose to be a part of CAPA. I wanted to be part of something bigger than myself and lend my expertise to a worthy cause. I believe in what our organization is doing to uplift Asian communities in Michigan and as CAPA’s education chairperson, I am working with our team towards implementing more educational programs to enrich our young people like our Scholar Awards and the CAPA Global Youth Initiative happening in October.”
