One of NAAAP Houston’s most important goals is to help create future leaders of the Asian American community in the Greater Houston Area. For the past eight years, NAAAP Houston has awarded nearly 30 Asian American high school graduates with scholarship grants ranging from $500 to $1,000 each. Scholarship recipients have carried on the tradition of giving back to their own community in the future when they step into the campuses of the top tier universities in the nation.
We sincerely welcome you to join us at our 9th Annual NAAAP Houston Scholarship Banquet on Saturday, June 25th at Hyatt Regency Houston.
You will have the opportunity to witness the potential future Asian American leaders as well as mingling with those who have already established great accomplishments among our community. There will be guest speakers, entertainment, live auction, and raffle tickets drawing.
Live auction and raffle prizes include luxury resorts weekend stay, boutique café dining coupons, celebrity autograph items, photography sessions, luxury car weekend rental, and name-brand desserts gift certificates. And the list is still growing!
