In September, the Chinese Culture Center of SF invited CAIS students to submit nominations for an AAPI Community Heroes mural contest. A group of CAIS students decided to nominate one particularly impactful CAIS teacher. After a city-wide outreach to community members and over 5,000 students in the Bay Area, our very own Tiffany Long was nominated and subsequently chosen as one of the top heroes amongst a panel review. Ms. Long is one of 12 figures—including Ruth Asawa, Wong Kim Ark, Cynthia Choi, and Caroline Cabading, to name a few—featured on a mural in Chinatown, SF! The beautiful mural was unveiled on April 27 (Ms. Long is the first person depicted on the left side of the mural)! Ms. Long’s was selected for being a “passionate educator heralding inclusiveness.” Read more about the wonderful project here.
