NB 2016 April Newsletter

Michelle Cho  | Published on 4/21/2016



Dear All,

Following up on our NBD meeting summary last month, we will begin our series of communications to share information about our activities and our people. We have many interesting activities taking place both internal and external to our organization with our donors and students that you will find interesting.  Equally interesting are the people who serve our organization and it would be great to share their stories with the rest of our KASF members and friends. In this newsletter, we have highlighted some of our activities and profiled a few of our Young Professionals.   In the future, we plan to profile more of our members – both long time as well as the new members. 

We also would like to share stories about how some of our past recipients are doing. As you know, some of our past recipients have gone on to make big impact in our community and it’s very important that we share these stories with our donors and our community. Our Young Professional Group is working on a plan to identify our past recipients and make special videos highlighting their stories so it would be very helpful if you can help identify anyone that you know who might be a good candidate for this project.

As you read these stories, you may be wondering, “why am I not being highlighted?” or “why some of our own activities are not being shared?”. If so, please contact Michelle Cho and she will be glad to profile your story and/or your region’s activities in our future series. With your help, we can continue to share our stories which will energize all of us, including our students, donors and volunteers. As always, we welcome your feedback. 

Thank you,
Leonard Kim
Chair, KASF National Board
