More than 250 young Cambodians who received a “Grade A” on the 2016 National High School Exam visited the Embassy on Sunday for a special event to promote study in the United States. The students attended the first-ever EducationUSA Grade A Student Fair, hosted by the EducationUSA Cambodia advising center.
“As you follow your dreams, each of you have the responsibility to help Cambodia develop and prosper,” Ambassador Heidt said. “We here at the U.S. Embassy are all very proud of each of you and wish you very much success.”
The Ambassador was joined by Ministry of Education, Youth, and Sport Undersecretary of State H.E. Lav Chhiv Eav, EducationUSA advisor Kolap Mao, Fulbright scholar Sean Viseth, and director of STEM Cambodia Organization Allen Tan.
After the formal program, the students had a chance to talk with representatives from Young Southeast Asian Leaders Initiative, The U.S. Ambassador’s Youth Council, STEM Cambodia, and much more.
