Baltimore-Xiamen Sister City Committee Remembers Longtime Treasurer Arella Liu with New Scholarship Program
— November 2020 —
In memory of Arella Liu, the long-time Treasurer of the Baltimore-Xiamen Sister City Committee (BXSCC), who passed away in October 2020 after a brief battle with late-stage cancer, the BXSCC will be establishing a scholarship for Baltimore City youth with a strong interest in China. The scholarship is projected to help fund studies of Chinese language and culture, including potential travel with Sister Cities.
Arella was the originator of the BXSCC’s Youth Ambassadors program and despite, per her preference, not being one of the “faces” of the program, was key in executing the program in the background. She also loved foreign travel and bringing the Chinese language and culture into the lives of the citizens of her adopted hometown of Baltimore.
More details about this scholarship program will be announced in 2021 via the BXSCC website.
