Hoang stayed with his mother Sheila for the summer. For a summer job, Hoang worked construction. It was his job to keep track of the asphalt trucks transporting hot mix. Here is is working on County Highway 1, which runs past our place.
I still remember Hoang as a young teenager full of fire, ideas and a desire to affect change.
It will Hoang's last year at Syracuse University, where he studies Public Policy.
We're glad he's stayed the course. He's made Sheila and all of us proud.
