Regine Gabis receives Irene Poon scholarship

Regine Gabis is the recipient of the Irene Poon Scholarship.    The Irene Poon scholarship is awarded to a full-time student who has completed Asian American studies courses (including history)  and who is committed to volunteering with the AAS/TACT (The Association of Chinese Teachers) Biography Curriculum Project.  The AAS/TACT project is focused on the creation of a national online database of  Asian American classroom curriculum for K-12 teachers.  After graduating with an Asian American Studies degree, Regine plans to intern for an Asian American community organization and obtain her nursing degree. Regine hopes to use both degrees in Asian American Studies and nursing to help the impoverished Asian community in the San Francisco Bay Area and in Southeast Asia.
