Education is POWER! We believe in the POWER of education. It is our mission to promote, advance, and celebrate the academic success of our youth. They hold the key to our long-term success.
On June 11, 2011, LAOE was proud to celebrate the academic success of nine of our community finest students. With the generous support of the Law Offices of Ficher & Miller, we presented scholarships to help our youth advance further in their education. This event was special for many reasons.
First, we were blessed with a generous donation of over $6,000 to award scholarships to our youth by the Law Offices of Fichera & Miller. They donated the funds because they wanted to support our community and help develop our youth. This was an act of great compassion and we are truly appreciative and grateful for their generosity.
The following students were the recipients of the Law Offices of Fichera & Miller Scholarship Award:
- $2,500 – Cheedah Phoutharath
- $1,500 – Elizabeth Phommaleuth
- $1,000 – Ashley Somphonhphakdy
- $750 – Nora Kethdy
- $500 – Issara Abhay
Congratulations to the recipients and their families. CLICK HERE TO OPEN PICTURE GALLERY
Another reason why this was a special event is the support we received from the community. This was the first kind of event we have produced at the Seville to promote education. We appreciate everyone donating their time and money to support a great event. We believe that education is extremely valuable in order for our community to grow. This was truly an event that demonstrated our community’s commitment to unify to celebrate education. Thank you to all the guest for attending this event.
Perhaps a greater reason why this event was special is that it has set a standard for us to achieve and grow. We want to continue to grow this success for many years to come. It was a great pleasure to see so many youth in the audience. There were children of all ages, toddlers to teenagers to college age students. They are our future. To have them be a part of this event is priceless. We have set a standard for them and for our community.
We would like to say thank you and congratulations to all the volunteers of this event. The Scholarship Committee worked very hard to create this wonderful experience. Thank you to Alan Thavisouk and his team for inspiring us all on the POWER of education.
