NACA Scholarship Winner


For the second year, NACA has provided a $500 scholarship to a senior at Lanier who plans to attend a 4-year college.

  This year's winner is Tien Do. She is a member of the National Honor Society, National Coalition Building Institute, Peer Mediation, and class secretary. In addition, she has volunteered at St. David's Medical Center 3-4 hours per week and worked at the Quail Creek Festival.

She came to the US from Vietnam at the age of five and has become somewhat Americanized, but speaks only Vietnamese at home. She lives with her parents, Huong Pham and Thinh Do, and her younger sister, Trang, and her grandpa.

She plans to attend either UT Austin or Baylor University and major in human ecology (textile) or business. Tien has received about $44,000 in other scholarship funds.

We wish her the best as she goes to college in the fall.
