Hands for Africa is pleased to announce Thien Nghiem, recipient of the 2012 Ronald McDonald House Charities/Asian Pacific American Students Increasing Achievement Scholarship. Thien has demonstrated the qualities of not only a great student, local community leader, but also the character traits of a true world citizen. In addition to a college scholarship, Thien was given the opportunity to select a nonprofit organization to receive an additional $500 honorarium. Thien chose Hands for Africa, as he was recently rather involved with our organization, donating many of his personal hours to help the victims of the blood diamond conflict. Hands for Africa had the privilege of being present at the Ronald McDonald House Charities ceremony on June 2nd, to congratulate Thien and accept the honorarium donation.
