David Ta-Keng Huang Memorial Scholarship

Though he was only 24 years old when he passed away, David Ta-Keng Huang lived more in those few years than most live in a lifetime. David excelled in all aspects of life: from academia to athletics, from music to literature. He was the very definition of a well-rounded individual. Yet despite David’s success, he frequently and consistently gave back to the community in which he lived. With this in mind, we are proud to offer the David Ta-Keng Huang Memorial Scholarship.

We the members of the committee look forward to reviewing nominations by High School counselors with the hope that the student will make us think, if only for a moment, of David. If you are a High School counselor and would like to nominate a student, please email us.
