Asian Advisory Committee to host Asian Pacific American Heritage Celebration

HISD will observe the start of Asian-Pacific Heritage Month on Thursday, May 4, with an Asian Pacific American Heritage Celebration at Kim Son restaurant downtown (2001 Jefferson Street).

As a part of that celebration, members of the district’s Asian Advisory Committee will recognize three outstanding teachers for their contributions to Asian students and to HISD as a whole. Teachers will be selected from the elementary, middle, and high school level and will receive a $500 cash prize each. 

Individual tickets are $30, and sponsorship levels can be found here.
