10/27/19 Haunt History Park SJ

By Judy Wong, 2019 CHCP Treasurer

I would label the event a success. Many Haunt History Park attendees stopped at our site to play slingshot bats and jumping spiders, then proceeded to our bat magnet assembling and finger puppets.  The orange information and activities handout was well received.  Student Volunteer Kendrick was very good about offering the handout while explaining it contained more information about bats and their good luck qualities.

For the fifth year, CHCP presented the Lillian Gong-Guy Memorial Scholarship (LGGMS) awards during the Student Recognition Day held on Sunday, May 19th at History Park San José. Scholarship Committee Co-Chairs Allan Low and Debbie Gong-Guy introduced each of the six scholarship winners to an enthusiastic audience of family, friends and fellow students. New this year, CHCP engaged the online services of Going Merry to process our applications and we received a record number of applicants from high schools throughout Santa Clara County.

Wilcox High School, Justin Nicholas Quan of Los Gatos High School, Vivian Tsang of Milpitas High School, and Carly Zhiyi Feng of Henry M. Gunn High School. Each of the recipients expressed much appreciation and thanks to CHCP for their scholarships.

In addition to the Co-Chairs, this year’s Scholarship Committee members were Anita Wong Kwock, Patrick Kwok, Bozena Teo, Brenda Wong, Judy Wong and Karyn Wong. If you are interested in joining our committee for next year’s scholarships, please contact us at scholarship@chcp.org
