Governor Hogan Delivers Keynote Address at International Leadership Foundation’s 2022 Scholarship & Awards Gala
马里兰州安纳波利斯 — 州长拉里·霍根昨晚在国际领䄂基金会 (ILF) 的 2022 年奖学金和颁奖晚会上发表了主题演讲，该基金会是一个鼓励亚裔太平洋岛民 (AAPI) 青年从事公共服务和创业的非营利组织。
ILF 的年度颁奖晚会表彰了多个类别的个人和组织，以表彰他们在过去一年中为促进和支持 AAPI 社区所做的努力。第一夫人 Yumi Hogan 于 2016 年获得 ILF 励志领袖奖。
去年 11 月，霍根州长宣布了一系列全州范围内的行动，以应对因 COVID-19 大流行而导致的反亚裔仇恨和偏见犯罪的增加。在上个月韩美投资论坛发表讲话时，州长还宣布，他将于 9 月率领一个经济发展代表团访问日本和韩国。
Encourages Asian American Youth to Pursue Careers in Public Service
ANNAPOLIS, MD—Governor Larry Hogan last night delivered the keynote address at the 2022 Scholarship & Awards Gala of the International Leadership Foundation (ILF), a nonprofit organization that encourages Asian American Pacific Islander (AAPI) youth to pursue careers in public service and entrepreneurship.
“Tonight, as I see all of these incredible young Asian American leaders, it gives me hope that America’s best days are still ahead of us,” said Governor Hogan. “So embrace the things that make you unique, do what you are passionate about, take bold risks, challenge the status quo, and don’t ever give up.”
The ILF’s annual awards gala honors individuals and organizations in a number of categories for their efforts to advance and support the AAPI community over the past year. First Lady Yumi Hogan received the ILF Inspirational Leader Award in 2016.
Last November, Governor Hogan announced a series of statewide actions to combat the rise in anti-Asian hate and bias crimes as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. During remarks at the Korea-U.S. Investment Forum last month, the governor also announced that he will be leading an economic development mission to Japan and Korea in September.
The governor and the First Lady were joined at last night’s event by their daughter, Jaymi Sterling, who last week won a resounding victory to become the next state’s attorney for St. Mary’s County, as well as former U.S. Secretary of Transportation and U.S. Secretary of Labor Elaine Chao; U.S. Ambassador to the UN Christopher P. Lu; U.S. Representative Judy Chu; President and CEO of the National Asian/Pacific Islander American Chamber of Commerce and Founding President of ILF Chiling Tong.
