Our father was a great teacher who had taught many students whom are now very successful all over the world. His methods and discipline toward higher education was very apparent growing up. He strongly believed in education and had always pushed us to excel in schools and in business. We are all successful because his teachings but most importantly better people. He taught us compassion, kindness, hard work, respect and giving back.

Our family had benefited greatly  his teachings and we hope this scholarship will inspire and help other young kids to reach further to achieve their goals and ultimately be even better people. We donated to many charities and many previous community day events and we know he would be happy because of it.

Thank you for continuing to do great things for our community.
