In collaboration with Howard County Executive Dr. Calvin Ball and the Howard County Council, LOKA celebrated Korean American Day at the George Howard Building on January 13, 2024.
In December of 2023, the League of Korean Americans hosted the 26th Anniversary of the Year-End Celebration and presented scholarships to senior high school students to promote higher education.
LoKA celebrated the 25th anniversary in the year-end event, held at Laurel Hilton Homewood Suites Hotel on December 15th. LoKA has been working to enrich the community in various areas of service, taking initiatives for youth leadership, COVID-19 vaccination campaigns, Korean translation for customer service, and many more. The celebration was a valuable chance for reflecting on LoKA’s past efforts, as well as for reinforcing the intent for the future endeavors. Click the link below to watch the full ceremony:
