FRESNO, Calif. (KFSN) -- An organization of Asian women awarded $10,000 in scholarship money Saturday afternoon.

Bay area assemblywoman Fiona Ma was the guest speaker at a scholarship luncheon for the Central California Asian Pacific Women's Organization.

The organization gave out ten scholarships to central valley students Saturday and is celebrating its 30th anniversary this year.

"The organization started back in 1980, and we're still going strong. We've had a lot of scholarship recipients that have come back to participate on our board, after they finish their education. They've been with us for a while," Roberta Barton said.

This year's recipients include one of our former ABC30 interns. Nu Vang is studying broadcasting and communications at Fresno State.
