2017 Democracy Builder

Pyung Lee Pyung is a first year student who plans on transferring to Virginia Polytechnical University pursuing a degree in biochemistry. Although Pyung aspires to research sustainable forms of energy and methods to alleviate the effects of climate change, he believes that democracy is essential to the well being of the society. As he continues his education at NVCC and beyond, he will work to stay politically engaged and inform others to ultimately build a well functioning democracy for society.

Pyung sincerely thanks Professor Savkar and Professor Loser for their support of democracy and for selecting him to receive the Democracy Builders Essay prize.
