State Assemblyman Phil Ting recognizes San Francisco State University College of Business alumna Iana Lim as Veteran of the Year for the 19th District at a veterans’ luncheon in Sacramento.
When recent San Francisco State University graduate Iana Lim started high school, she had no interest in joining the military. It was her brother who wanted to follow that path. He invited her to tag along when he met with U.S. Navy recruiters, however — an invitation that changed her life.
Lim accompanied her brother to his recruitment visit, elected to join the Navy after high school and went on to serve her fellow veterans in an array of roles at San Francisco State University. For this, state assemblyman Phil Ting named her Veteran of the Year for California’s 19th District, which encompasses parts of San Francisco and Daly City.
