Uy Phi '06

Newman University (1998-Present)

It's been a long road from a teacher and law school student in Vietnam to now an English teacher at Derby High School, but one Uy says is worth it.  Uy Phi was recently honored for excellence in teaching in the Derby School system.  She escaped the Communist takeover in Vietnam with hopes that her chldren would have a better life and a chance to go to college.  Uy says, "It is a long story-a sad story- but we're all here now.  My kids all have a college degree, and I'm happy."
