GraceShiba1The campus has come alive with the new semester and there is a lot going on at the APAA! We are ushering in Jaime Lee as the new President and thank Karen Wong for her 2-year presidency and her continued service as Immediate Past President. Under Karen’s guidance, we successfully launched our $2 million 4-year capital campaign, reaching over half our goal within the first year! We are also welcoming a new class of 63 APAA Scholars, the most we’ve ever had!

Our staff and board of directors are preparing our 12th Annual APAA Scholarship Golf Classic on October 2nd. It will be held at Strawberry Farms Golf Club in Irvine and we welcome golfers and non-golfers alike in support of student scholarships. For more information, please visit our events page. These are exciting times—and there’s never been a better time to get engaged or re-engaged with our Trojan Family!
