I am both humbled and honored at the news that I was selected as the 2011 recipient of this award. Thanks to Delaware County Community College, the Wong Moss Outstanding Alumni Award nominating committee, and to John Moss for seeing something within me worthy of honoring his family legacy.
This award recognizes distinguished alumni for their outstanding professional, community and educational accomplishments. It was created by the late Barbara Wong Moss, a former College trustee, and her son John in honor of her father, a Chinese immigrant who believed in the value of education.
In many ways I feel guilty for being rewarded and recognized for doing things that I love to do and that I know are right. It may sound like a cliche but the satisfaction that I get out of the mere “doing” is my reward…. my payday. To be recognized on top of that isn’t necessary. I often feel like I am taking away more than I am giving. But this is a real honor and I am extremely grateful for the nod and appreciative to all.
