On Saturday May 11 at the Buena Park Moose Lodge the Empire Hub District #19 was proud to honor Nguyen Ha Tran on winning the 1st place Scholarship of $12,000 at the Moose International Youth Awareness Congress. Along with Nguyen, Thi Le and Tammy Le were each awarded $500.00 from the California/Nevada Moose Riders for being finalist in our Moose Youth Awareness Congress. Also, in attendance of the presentation from the California/Nevada Moose Association were President, Richard Balthazar and Vice President, Burhl “Bud” Harwood.
On May 20 we were invited by Western High School to come down to their Senior Awards Night to recognize Nguyen Tran. Linda Either, Bridget Robertson, and I on behalf of the Buena Park Moose Congress presented two plaques. One to Nguyen for his first place Moose Youth Awareness Scholarship, and the second one to Western High School’s principal Amy Kwon for the school’s support.
We are already planning for next year’s Youth Awareness Congress and if you would like to get involved or would like more information about our scholarship program, please ask.
