What a great turnout for our LAS Career Workshop! Thanks to all who volunteered and attended.

"The experience with the LAS was great. Getting to know groups of people with similar background and knowing that the LAS is there to support us really encourage me. The Career Development Workshop not only taught me knowledge on career development but also delivered positive energy would affect my daily life." - Y. Zhu, Attendee


Congrats to our outstanding Students from this year's EAC!

LAS held its Education Awards and Scholarship ceremony at the Clarkston Community Center on August 27, 2016.

Thanks to all the Parents and Students that attended our 2016 Honors Day where we recognized bright Laotian-American kids and awarded College Scholarships! Thanks to the Education board for handling all the nominations, the independent third party that judged the college applications, and our extended community for all the help and support with the food and refreshments.

This program is made possible year after year with corporate donations, contributions from generous individuals in our community, and of course the hard work of our LAS volunteers and members.

Laotian American students still rank below many other minorities when it comes to high school graduation rates and college admission.  It is our belief that education can help in the betterment of one’s life and also a springboard to becoming a productive member of society.  By stressing education and culture, LAS hopes that our children can break the cycle of poverty, and carry our mission forward.
