“Education and determination are what I value most.”
— Henry Rhee
My grandfather Henry Hyunjong Rhee is one of the first Korean citizens to obtain a Ph.D. in Europe, and he couldn’t have done it without the strong support and sacrifice of my grandmother. I want my gift to honor my grandparents’ legacy and the values they have instilled in their children and grandchildren. Their vision and sacrifice have allowed us to dream big and thrive. A legacy gift from Christine S. Oh, pictured with her grandfather, will be made to CCF’s Fund for the Future of Los Angeles in her grandparents’ honor.
