TWGSS Reunion Story:

David Leong ('68 TWGSS graduate) immigrated to the United States with his parents in 1968. He graduated from California State University, LA with a B.A. degree in Economics and started working with the County of Los Angeles (LA) at the age of 22. While working with the County, he attended graduate courses during two week nights and Saturdays and completed his Masters degree in Public Administration at University of Southern California (USC) in two years. In September 2009, David retired from the LA County after thirty-seven years of outstanding public services.
Now he enjoys traveling with his wife Mee Jin. Currently, he lectures at Cal Poly Pomona, and Cal Sate Dominguez Hills on an on-call basis. He is also volunteering in the City of Arcadia Community Center two days a week. During his vacation in Hong Kong in 2008, David found out that Hayward Ng, a '67 TWGSS graduate has been residing in San Gabriel which is adjacent to City of Arcadia where he resides. They got reconnected after thirty some years of living in LA! David particpated in the Chinese New Year Reunion on February 16, 2010 San Gabriel when a '66/'68 TWGSS graduate Marianna Ng Fun visited LA.

Alex P. Cheng, (TWGSS '66/'68) who has been updating all the reunion photos for TWGSS discovered David in one of the reunion photos and they got reconnected through multiple e-mails communication. In September 1968, Alex went abroad to study Electrical Engineering at California State University, Chico, CA. After graduation, he went to join his mother, brother and sister in Venezuela in 1973. He has worked for the Ministry of Transport and Commuications (MTC) as a Roadway Lighting Engieer for ten years (1976-1986) prior to his return to graduate school in 1987. He graduated in 1990 from Penn State University with a M.S. degree in Architectural Engineering with a specialization in Illumination. Currently, he works as a Lighting Engineer for the Department of Public Works & Environmental Services (DPWES) , County of Fairfax, Virginia.
