Lillian Gong-Guy Memorial Scholarship

By Allan Low and Debbie Gong-Guy, 2020 CHCP Scholarship Committee Co-Chairs

For the sixth year, the Chinese Historical & Cultural Project (CHCP) is honored to announce the recipients of the Lillian Gong-Guy Memorial Scholarship (LGGMS) awards on Sunday, May 17th. We are living in unprecedented times. Due to the current shelter-in-place order to contain the COVID-19 coronavirus and the possible health risks to our students, guests, and members, the Student Recognition event scheduled at San Joseʼs History Park had to be cancelled. However, we are proud to virtually announce our 2020 scholarship recipients and continue this tradition.

The Lillian Gong-Guy Memorial Scholarship was established in 2014 in tribute to CHCPʼs late co-founder, Lillian Gong-Guy, to recognize exemplary seniors who have demonstrated academic achievement balanced with strong community service and involvement. Our five scholarship award recipients this year truly represent the future leaders of our community.

Our scholarship winners are:

In addition to the Co-Chairs, Allan Low and Debbie Gong-Guy, this yearʼs Scholarship Committee members are Anita Wong Kwock, Bozena Teo, Brenda Wong, Judy Wong, and Karyn Wong.

We would like to thank all the donors to the LGGMS program for their continued generosity and support. For more information, please contact us at scholarship@chcp.org.

NOTE: Information for CHCP Student Docent volunteers that are being recognized in 2020 will be forthcoming to this blog entry soon.
