Vietnamese Culture and Science Association (VCSA) will sponsor the Nineteenth Annual Vietnamese-American Youth Excellence Recognition Program to commemorate the accomplishments of outstanding Vietnamese-American high school students. VCSA annually recognizes the academic achievements of Vietnamese-American high school students who graduated as either valedictorian or salutatorian of their respective high schools. The program also serves to encourage the younger Vietnamese-American generations to strive for academic excellence and instill a strong sense of civic responsibility among all Vietnamese-Americans in the Greater Houston area. Every year, previous awardees volunteer to co-chair the event.
VCSA promotes excellence in education, leadership and skills development, and volunteerism through culture and science. The organization encourages multi-generational and cross-cultural collaborations by cultivating civic participation in the mainstream and Vietnamese America. Tickets to the event, open to all members of the community, are $25.00 per person and can be purchased at the VCSA Center, located at 4615 Belle Park Dr, Houston, Texas 77072.

On February 4th, 2015, the hit comedy series Fresh Off The Boat premiered on ABC. The show is based on the memoirs of Eddie Huang, the American born son of Taiwanese immigrants, and chronicles his family's pursuit of the American Dream. This would be the first time in twenty years (and second time ever) that an Asian American family is the main cast on a network sitcom, sparking a conversation about the role of Asian American Pacific Islanders' (AAPI) in the media. What kind of social, political, or economic impact, if any at all, do you think this development has had on you personally, the AAPI community, or American society at large? Feel free to use any examples from this show or any other media portrayals of AAPIs to make your case.
