The Tony Gex Memorial Scholarship




Athena Nghiem is presented the Tony Gex Memorial Scholarship

by Laura Dukes Frances, AHSAA Vice-President, at the Awards Ceremony


   After interviewing several outstanding Arcadia High School Seniors, the AHS Alumni Association Scholarship committee recommended the Tony Gex Memorial Scholarship to be presented to Athena Nghiem.


    Her appreciation for teachers, the love of literature and the passion to learn would have made Mr Gex proud. Athena has volunteered countless hours helping other AHS students in the peer tutoring program as well as Vice President of the Senior Men and Women at AHS. Her accomplishments are exhaustive, all while maintaining a 3.87 GPA.


    Being accepted to attend UC Berkeley is a financial challenge for her family, as her father is disabled and unable to work. Athena plans to participate in the “Teach for America” program.


    Athena was very grateful for the help, stating, “I’m honored to receive this award from the alumni who also attended Arcadia High School”.


 We will continue honoring Mr Tony Gex in the future by presenting an annual scholarship in his memory. We plan on making this fund raising endeavor possible with the help from our fellow AHS Alumni.
