Ngoc Duong of Fairfax, VA, whose father Phuong Dong is a member of UFCW Local 400, has been awarded a $3,000 scholarship. Ngoc’s father was a businessman in Vietnam who gave up his economic security to come to America. But he soon found another kind of security with the UFCW, which backed him through work-related injuries and helped achieve a safer workplace for him and his co-workers. Now it is Ngoc who plans to succeed in business, with a degree in finance and, one day, a career in management consulting.
