Announcing the Milken Scholars Class of 2015
We are pleased to announce our newest class of Milken Scholars; twenty-nine outstanding students from Washington D.C., New York City, and Los Angeles County, each of whom possesses the character, leadership, and academic achievement that exemplify our program motto: Lifelong Leaders for a Better World.
Meet Angela She, MS '08
Possessing passion for what you do while maintaining focus and an open mind are driving factors for 2008 Milken Scholar Angela She, and by compounding her qualities with inspiration and determination, she will impact the stories of countless others; a positive charge for this Lifelong Leader for a Better World.
"The Milken Scholars are obviously a very intelligent and accomplished group of people. More importantly, they are, each, thoughtful and inspiring individuals. I came to speak to the group; hoping to inspire them with my story. I left inspired by theirs." Nelson Carbonell, Jr. - Chair, Board of Trustees, George Washington University
"It has been a pleasant and rewarding experience speaking at the Milken Scholars Summit. I enjoyed sharing my own stories and thoughts with those extraordinarily talented young people this program has brought together. I'm confident that this program is nurturing future leaders of our society who will make the world a better one." Dominic Ng - Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, East West Bank
The Milken Scholars Program thanks Emanuel J. Friedman Philanthropies for its generous support of our Washington D.C. Scholars.
