Nominating Organization:  PIMCO

Honoree Category:  Education

Why Nominated:  This group, launched in the fall of 2013 by Dan Hwang, a Product Management associate, visited NOVA Academy in Santa Ana to work with high school seniors applying to college. Dan and team put together a five week program to review the students’ resumes, personal statements, essays and letters of recommendation. On the final class date, the students came to PIMCO’s global headquarters to hear from an executive vice president and portfolio manager on the importance of going to college – and graduating from college! Dan’s College Readiness program will be expanding next fall, as we realize the added value, expertise and insight our PIMCO volunteers can share with high school seniors.
