2011 APIA Scholarship Award

The 2011 APIA Scholarship was awarded to Chiaki Kimura who has done volunteer work for most of her life, starting as a five year old when she participated in fund-raising for the victims of the Kobe earthquake. She continued her volunteer work at a nursing home and at a kindergarten school. At Fullerton College, Chiaki has been active in student organizations and did fund-raising for the 2011 earthquake victims in Japan. She has also been interested in environmental issues, helping to clean beaches in Japan as well as in California. Chiaki will be tranferring to California State University Long Beach as a dance major.

APIA's first award was presented at the Transfer Reception hosted by the Cadena Transfer Center. Lily Espinoza generously allowed APIA to participate in the event and has offered to let APIA continue to do so next year.
