On April 26, 2013, OAPABA board members and general mebers attended the Asian Reporter’s Annual Foundational Scholarship Banquet. The Annual Scholarship Awards Banquet is an avenue to post exemplary community service, honor our community’s elders, and recognize the hard work and aspirations of young Asian Americans. The event provides outstanding community-outreach and public relations opportunities. Scholarship sponsors are recognized with the names of the scholarship winners. Other recognition given at this event includes the Exemplary Community Volunteer and Most Honored Elder awards, which showcase the many accomplishments of outstanding individuals and community groups.
Once again, congratulations to OAPABA’s very own Julia Markley for being the recipient of the Mercedes Deiz Award at this year’s 21st Annual Roberts-Deiz Awards Dinner on Friday, March 8, 2013, at the Nines Hotel Ballroom. In support of Julia, OAPABA members attended the event as well as Paul Hirose, a former president of NAPABA. Julia was introduced by our very own OAPABA president Simon Whang. See below for pictures!
