The National Association of Asian American Professionals Seattle Chapter (NAAAP–Seattle) held its 33rd annual scholarship gala at the Museum of Flight last Friday, Nov. 9. At the event, which was attended by several hundred people, NAAAP awarded three scholarships ranging from $2,000 to $2,500. Two of the scholarships went to high school students Rosida Mohamathno and Haoming Wang to pursue a college education. The final scholarship went to Maile Kaneko to pursue graduate studies.

The event was anchored by a keynote speech from MulvannyG2 Architecture Chairman Jerry Lee. He detailed his youth and drive to achieve and give back.

During the event, NAAAP also hosted live and silent auctions to raise money for next year’s scholarships, with proceeds totaling approximately $8,000. (end)
