Congratulations to Andy Shung-Heun Jeon of Abington Senior High School in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, who has just won the Jonathan A. Grode New American Scholar Award. This scholarship is awarded on an annual basis to an immigrant of a first generation American who has shown academic excellence.
Andy and his family were originally from Korea. They are now proud Americans, and happy to call Abington Pennsylvania home. He is an official graduate of the Abington Senior High class of 2019. After high school, Andy has plans to attend college at Princeton University. The scholarship money will be put towards his school tuition.

He then studied at Temple University’s James E. Beasley School of Law, where he graduated first in his class. After years of continuous experience as a lawyer in business immigration law, he opened up the first U.S. office of Green and Spiegel in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He continues to give back not only to his previous high school, but others too.
