ACLF hosts Community Leaders Program graduation dinner

The 2012 graduates of the ACLF Community Leaders Program

The Asian Pacific Islander Community Leader held their 13th annual Community Leaders Program graduation dinner on Nov. 17, 2012 at South Seattle Community College. In addition to celebrating the graduates, the dinner also raised money for the program next year and honored Mai Nguyen, winner of the Kip Tokuda award.

The program is six months long and trains emerging leaders in the APA community from the public, private, and nonprofit sectors. Twelve to 15 participants are chosen each year. The program consists of semi-monthly workshops, networking opportunities, and working with a community organization on a special project. This year’s community project involved revitalizing WAPI’s International District office.

The program graduates for the year of 2012 are Melissa Atalig, Micah Bateman-Iino, Philip Angelo Bruan, Jennifer Duong, Kyle Gotchy, Noah Shen Jaffe, Julie Kim, Kiwai Lai, Kathy Nguyen, Stanley Wong, Grant Wu, and Annia Mieko Yoshizumi. (end)
