I was so delighted and honored to receive the Outstanding Alumni Award from NCKUNAAA Chicago 2009. I greatly appreciated my nomination from President Chen Pinwhei, Council and Directors of NCKUAA of Greater New York, and my selection from the Board of Directors of NCKUNAAA and Foundation. I also want to thank my wife, Lynne, and two children, Christine and Roger, for their encouragement and constant support throughout my career and every day life.
I want to give a thank from the bottom of my heart to our fellow alumni of CKUAA of Greater New York, all of whom deserve the award much more than I for their hard work and friendship to bring all of us together like a big family. I always cherish the spirit and warm feeling whenever we have the opportunity to get together.
We all have ups and downs in our life. From my own personal experiences, I have found that as long as we maintain the high spirit and hard work, our enormous latent ability will always give us the strength to cope with any obstacles we encounter and achieve the goal we set to work for.
As I described in my “Autobiography” for the award, I consider myself as a very lucky man, despite all the difficulties I have had, and hope to do as much as I can to improve the life of all mankind in order to leave the world a better place than before.
