Theo tin Hội Association of Vietnamese Americans
For the last twenty eight years, the Association of Vietnamese Americans (AVA), formerly known as the Maryland Vietnamese Mutual Association (MVMA), has organized an annual Academic Awards Ceremony to recognize outstanding Vietnamese American students attending Maryland public schools for their excellence in academic performance, leadership skills and community involvement. Last year, AVA recognized over 90 students who were nominated by their Montgomery County public schools. In addition to the student academic awards, we will give out two $1,000 college scholarships and will also recognize teachers and counselors for their contributions to Vietnamese American students’ academic success, and for helping to enrich the students’ lives. This year, the awards ceremony will take place at: Bohrer Park at 506 South Frederick Ave., Gaithersburg, MD 20877 on Sunday, June 04, 2017 from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm, followed by a community picnic which students, parents, and other Vietnamese community members are invited to attend.
