Aishiki Nag Named 2023 Tigard Shining Stars Youth Volunteer of the Year
Aishiki Nag has been selected as the 2023 Tigard Youth Volunteer of the Year! Named in honor of former Mayor Jim Nicoli, who passed away in 2000. Mayor Nicoli’s dedication to the youth of our community was a fitting way to honor his name and award a youth in our community who volunteers to make a difference. Many young people in Tigard are active in volunteer efforts and it is our pleasure to acknowledge their contributions of dedication, energy and community spirit. They are our future!
Former Mayor Jason Snider had this to say “Youth Councilor Nag has served the Tigard community, the City of Tigard, and Tigard High School over the last two years as the Youth Councilor on the Tigard City Council. However, her contributions to youth and our community only begin there. She has organized large scale voter registration drives and political forums that even included the Secretary of State as a speaker in person. Her passion and drive to improve our community is infectious!”
Aishiki is active in a number of clubs; Tigard High School Amnesty, Stop Teenage Underage Drinking & Drugs (STUDD), Model United Nations, Asian Culture Club, FTC Robotics team, National Honors Society. She is an intern for the Oregon League of Conservation Voters and a member of Next Up’s Youth Action Team. She says, “Testifying at the state legislature in front of the Committee of Rules, was one of the most empowering experiences I have had.”
Please join us in congratulating Aishiki on this well-deserved award. This award will be formally presented with other Tigard Volunteer and Business Awards at the 49th Annual Tigard Shining Stars Community Awards Celebration Presented by Edge One Media. It will be held on Friday, May 5th from 5:30pm – 9pm at the Embassy Suites Washington Square. Join us in celebrating the people and businesses that make Tigard a great place to work, play and live.
