2015 Scholarship Recipients

The Asian Pacific American Heritage Organization is proud to present our 2015 Scholarship recipients.  It was not an easy decision, as there were so many talented applicants.  It is wonderful to see so many students performing so well academically and giving so much of their time and efforts back to their community.
