MESSAGE FROM OUR CHAIRPERSON...
Talofa and Welcome!
It is indeed an honor for me as a Scholarship Chairperson to extend my personal CONGRATULATIONS to all our Recipients this year. I encourage you to put God first in everything that you do. Strive to achieve your goals and always believe in yourself. I also want to thank your parents for their incredible efforts in helping and investing in your education. We are so proud of you!
Composed entirely by volunteers with the desire to help, Sisters Alumni works tirelessly to raise funds and distribute scholarships to Pacific Island students. As I reflect on this past year, I am so proud of what we have accomplished during such a period of financial stress on everyone and on our nation as a whole. I salute all my fellow sisters for another year of hard work. HAPPY 24TH ANNIVERSARY!!
All this would not be possible without the continued support of our generous Sponsors. Thank you very much for all your help and contribution to our Scholarship Fund. We have received our very first ‘Memorial Scholarship’ last year. Thanks to Uli Feesago, Jr. for establishing this scholarship in memory of Tolo Fiso, his sweetheart and our late dedicated member. Jr. has donated this year again and also pledged to continue this memorial scholarship every year. We also appreciate our families, friends and supporters whom have always been there for us. Let us continue to work together to help our students with their pursuit of higher education.
I want to encourage more of our local Samoan/Pacific Island students to apply for our scholarship. Applications are made available on our website: www.sistersalumni.org and are also distributed to universities/colleges in the surrounding Los Angeles area. You may also request an application by mail. Please visit our website and let us know of any recommendation or comments.
On behalf of the Sisters Alumni of the South Pacific, I would like to say once again, “FAAFETAI, FAAFETAI TELE”. We look forward to see you again next year!
Soifua ma ia manuia,
Me Leota Philipp
