Sponsored by the County Supervisor and the San Diego Asian Americans for Equality, the San Diego Outstanding Asian & Pacific Islander Awards “celebrate students’ achievements in the areas of science and technology, arts and culture, sports development, and civil and community engagement.” Three Bishop’s students were honored last month: Michelle Wang ’22, Jeffrey Wang ’21 and Michael Zeng ’22.
Michelle notes, “This award celebrates the talent, leadership, and active participation of a student in a certain area of study/service as well as their academic excellence in schools. Its purpose is to enlighten and foster future Asian Pacific Islander (API) leaders.” She was honored for her work in the category of civil and community engagement. She adds, “I’m super passionate about community service and helping others, especially through teaching and tutoring.”
Jeffrey was acknowledged “for achievements in science and technology, civic engagement, and cultural development.” Those include his creative, critical and historical writing, research work, academic competitions and service learning activities.
Michael expresses his gratitude for the recognition for extracurricular and academic achievement, and particularly “that there are people trying to provide opportunities and awards for minorities.”
The Bishop’s School is an independent, coeducational college-preparatory day school for students in grades six through twelve who live throughout San Diego County. Founded in 1909, the School is affiliated with the Episcopal church.
