With great saddess, our respected Chinese teacher Mr. Chen Li Sung 陳禮頌先生 passed away in March in the United States at the age of 103. Mr. Chen graduated from Yenching University in Beijing and was a renowned Chinese scholar. Mr. Chen was our former Head of Chinese Department.

Our hearts and prayers go out to his family as they go through this difficult time.
