Hi PinoyJeep Readers,
Last week on Sunday, PAMAS (The Filipino-American Association of New England) held its annual scholarship night, this year, awarding Avi and I scholarship for our dedication to higher excellence and for helping the Filipino-American community here in Massachusetts. Tita Lidy Chan, the President of PAMAS, hosted the event and Alpha Miguel-Sanford, assistant headmaster of Randolph High School, was the keynote speaker for the night, who spoke extensively as to how Filipinos and even pancit can be "remarkable" if put to good use. Avi received the Angelito & Esther Santos Family Scholarship Award and I received the Harold Hofman Scholarship Award, funds that will be used wisely for college! The ceremony was then followed by dancing (of course) and eating and chatting. Typical of a Filipino party. Of course. For those Filipino-Americans who will be entering senior year, if you would like to be recognized for your work in the Filipino community and want a little cash reward for your college endeavors, apply for the PAMAS Scholarship! It's easy and worth it! Click here to visit the PAMAS website for more information.
