True Thai: giving back to the community

Congratulations to all the seniors who graduated from the Ramsey County Public Health Teen Parent Program! The dual high school graduation - program ceremony took place earlier this month, and True Thai was happy to provide food for the reception.

This year's guest speakers were very special indeed, and included Ramsey County Commissioners Toni Carter and Janice Rettman, and State Senator Mee Moua. Sen. Moua is the first Hmong-American elected to higher office, and she has been a role model to many of the young women in the program.

This is the fifth year I have worked with this program, and the first year True Thai made an in kind donation of food. I look forward to continuing to work with program participants, helping them to be the best parents they can be.
