The Xia He Memorial Fund


The Xia He Memorial Fund is established in loving memory of our dear friend/family member Xia He, a Chinese Senior at Milwaukie High School in Portland, Oregon. Xia was fatally electrocuted in an accident on February 23rd, 2002, at the young age of 18.

About Xia He

Just a month ago, Xia had been recommended to WHO's WHO Among American High School Students scholarship by Milwaukie High School. He had the honor to be awarded twice with the President Educational Award during his middle school career (1995 at Arleta School, 1997 at McLoughlin Middle School both in Portland, OR).

He was one of the two CEO's in the MHS TECH CADRE, a student-run organization at Milwaukie High School, providing a full range of technological services to the local community. Once he was honored by ASB (Associated Students Body) as the School Prince. We all cannot forget the sport that he loved and was extremely talented in, basketball.

Oh, dear Xia, we all grieve for our great loss. In your short life you have touched the lives of many people, at all ages and races. So many people loved and adored you, so many saw you as a person to look up to. You have set an example that all can follow, no matter what race. You had the potential to become the honor of our society.

Dear Xia, you will always be in our hearts and our memories. You are light now, inspiring and shining on us, fly free. Our prayers are with you.
