Lao Minnesotan receives McKnight Human Services Award

Congratulations to Lao Assistance Center Executive Director Sunny Chanthanouvong, who received the Virginia McKnight Binger Human Services Award from the McKnight Foundation.

Only one other Lao Minnesotan has received the award in its 28-year history, Kouthong Vixayvong, who was recognized in 1991.

First presented in 1985, The McKnight Foundation recognizes Minnesotans who demonstrate “an exceptional personal commitment to helping others in their communities but who have received little or no public recognition.” and who are “directly involved in providing human services, especially those working to make their communities more responsive to the needs of poor or disadvantaged people in Minnesota."
