Former Scholarship Winner's Success Story

In the early 1990's, Frances Hui, was a student who won a Friends' Scholarship. She is currently a Reference Librarian at Las Positas College in Livermore, California. She writes the following:


"Right now, I am working in Livermore at Las Positas College, which is a community college serving approximately 8,000 students. The students are wonderful and motivated, but the best part are my fellow librarians and library staff. We have a very supportive team environment in the LPC Library. At LPC, librarians have faculty status and I got tenure last year. . . .

Prior to LPC, I worked at the Oakland Public Library where I served as the children's librarian . . .

When I first graduated from UCLA in the spring of 1993, I returned to the Bay Area to start my job search. There were very few openings then so I volunteered at the San Leandro Public Library and worked part-time at Holy Names College in Oakland. The HNC job soon expanded into a full-time position and when the director retired I became the director of the library services. . . .

One of the first positive things to happen to me as a budding librarian was to receive the Mr. Jack Hom Scholarship. What an honor and thrill that was! Not only did the scholarship help fund my education, it was a great boost to my confidence to know that the . . . scholarship committee believed in my potential. So thank you again to Mr. Hom, the scholarship committee, and the Friends of the Chinatown Library. . . ."

The Friends would like to thank Frances Hui for sharing her success story with us.
