2013 Graduated Students

Congrats to Veronica M. Thao

High School graduate and winner of Thao/Kue graduation scholarship 2013.


Nyob Zoo! My name is Veronica Maisea Thao. I graduated from Robbinsdale Cooper High School on June 6, 2013 and I am currently attending Lawrence University in Appleton, Wisconsin hoping to major in Biology! A little info on my high school life is I was the first Hmong Editor-in-Chief of my school’s newspaper, I was the President of a volunteer group called Students in Action and won third place at state for being a top school in volunteering, I was also the president of the Anti-Bully club, I was the secretary of my school Student Council, a part of the National Honor Society at my school, in the science and Asian culture club, I was a varsity member on my schools tennis team and lastly I was in a college prep program called College Possible. I learned that grades are very important in school but being involved is just as important. It shows colleges that you are a student that can benefit their school intellectually and academically. It also makes you stand out from the next student because you have skills that will help you throughout your life like communicating inform of big groups, working together with people you don’t know compare the average student who isn’t involved and doesn’t know any of these things. It makes you unique and different therefore you are more visible to colleges then they are. Lastly, I want to say that if you have a dream pursue it, when you are successful it will never be too late but if you decide to party and not know where or what you want in life by the time you realize it, it may be too late. Work hard, there are people all around you to help you and feel free to contact me if you have any questions! Thank you Thao/Kue for giving me the opportunity to share my story and helping me pursue my dream and promoting further education to all the Thao/Kue kids out there!
