Among the 43 outstanding high school seniors who received scholarships on April 27, 2017 were four from the Lhotshampa (Nepalese/Bhutanese) community in Akron. We are very proud of their scholastic achievement and wish them success in their future schooling.
Nar Subba -- after months of planning, remodeling, negotiating leases, procuring loans, getting building plans and approvals, construction, and licensing with the health department -- now has a greatly expanded grocery store. Jim Oberdorfer and Majnu Rastogi planned the Grand Opening and Jim was very helpful in organizing the store's expansion.
This opening was a celebration of an immigrant success story for a Bhutanese refugee family in Akron, the "Welcoming City." Many people stopped by to meet the Subba family, sample Bhutanese food, and check out the many products available from around the world.
Selected BCAA activities are chronicled in this blog.
