TCCAA President’s Address at the 2014 Scholarship Awards Ceremony for High School Graduates
Good morning. I appreciate your coming to 2014 Mother’s Day Celebration and Scholarship Awarding Ceremony for High School Graduates co-held by Tri-Cities Chinese Alliance Church (TCCAC), Tri-Cities Chinese Language School (TCCLS) and Tri-Cities Chinese American Association (TCCAA). I am in charge of TCCAA in 2014. Now I announce the 2014 Scholarship Awarding Ceremony is going to be started.
While now we are immersed in the beautiful riverside of Columbia River, while now we are immersed in the joyfulness of achievement in our scientific research, while we are immersed in the happy families in Tri-Cities, do you remember or do you know the Tri-Cities areas are the barren dissert thirty years ago? Do you remember the strangeness and loneliness when we first came in America or Tri-Cities? Do you remember the warm hands during the journey of pursuing our dreams here? All these changes occurred in the magical lands are the results of full of love here. Just because the love has been flowing among us, we could have the cozy Chinese Community. We are grateful to everyone in the Chinese Community!
The donation for the scholarship is our interpretation of love. The light check concentrates the course of pursuing our dreams by ourselves, and the light check carries the hopes of old generations, and the light check actually is the heavy love. Wish the love would be passed on forever!
This year there are four high school graduates to gain the scholarship through the application and evaluation. All of them not only study hard, but also have public spirit and enthusiasm to serve for the community! Congratulations to all four awarded graduates!
