AAWC 2010 Scholars
Cecilia Moy Yep Scholar: Jeong Hwa Kim
Our 2010 Cecilia Moy Yep Scholarship recipient, Jeong Hwa (Emily) Kim, truly embodies the
spirit of AAWC's scholarship program. Despite family obligations which included care giving
and helping in the family business, she excelled academically at Plymouth Whitemarsh High School and distinguished herself as salutatorian of her graduating class. A member of the National Honor Society, Emily held leadership positions in several extracurricular activities
and "learned the value of giving, commitment, endurance and gratitude" through community service. Her internship at Einstein/Moss Rehabilitation Hospital contributed to her desire to pursue a medical career. She will be attending Emory University.
PECO Scholar: Weena Doyle
Consistently ranked near the top of her class, Weena Doyle, our PECO Scholar, majored in International Studies at West Philadelphia Catholic High School. She received Honorary Recognition for her participation in Model United Nations and served as representative all four years of the World Affairs Council of Philadelphia Student Ambassador Association. This highly motivated student-athlete balanced Advanced Placement classes and went beyond what was required in her many school activities and community service. She also found time to tutor at
her elementary school - Holy Redeemer. She is described as a "true student leader, who is constantly challenging herself and is determined, efficient and someone who perseveres."
Weena will be attending Drexel University.
The Powell Family Foundation Scholar: Connie Liao
Our Powell Family Foundation Scholar, Connie Liao, ranked first in her class at George Washington High School. She participated in many diverse activities including membership
in the National Honor Society. Among her many achievements, Connie was chosen as one of
only 12 student scientists to work at the Fox Chase Cancer Center in cutting-edge laboratory research and was selected as part of Common Ground Mission - a group of high school students
of different faiths who traveled to Israel. She will be attending the University of Pennsylvania - the first in her family to attend college pursuing her interest and desire to become a pediatrician.
