The Network of Asian American Organizations and Asian American Resource Center awarded Dr. Madeline Hsu, Center for Asian American Studies director, the 2012 Community Leadership Award at Saturday's charity gala at the Four Seasons Hotel benefiting the Asian American Resource Center.
Three UT-Austin students were also awarded $500 scholarships from the ACE Foundation. The foundations' mission is to ensure the growth and success of Austin’s Asian-American community through education and financial support. CAAS worked with the ACE Foundation again this year to identify UT students based on merit and leadership activities. CAAS selected Tu-Uyen Nguyen, Asian American Studies and Classics major, Lalini Pedris, CAAS student associate and double major in International Relation and Global Studies and Geography major, and Jennifer Tran, Asian American Studies and Government major. Congratulations to these amazing students!
