Founder Pao was born in the late Qing Dynasty, she experienced turbulent times and spent her days in Sichuan, Beijing, Nanjing, Hong Kong and finally arrived thousands of miles away from home to the island of Taiwan. She founded the first institution for women’s higher education in Taiwan, thus setting a precedent for women to serve as university presidents in Taiwan. She faithfully adhered to Chinese traditional culture while learning from western cultures, Founder Pao’s enthusiasm to repay the country with education and her ambition and determination to persevere to the end fueled her wholehearted devotion to education, to overcome obstacles, to keep pace with the times and constantly reform in order to stay fresh. Alongside MCU faculty, she faced and resolved many difficulties and cultivated many outstanding talents, illuminating the future for generations of people at Ming Chuan.
President Pao always insisted on holistic education; although she has now been gone from us for twelve years, we commemorate her spirit and selfless devotion in establishing the solid foundation of MCU. Under the leadership of Chancellor Lee and President Shen, all faculty, staff and students of MCU continue to strive together, moving onward with new strengths. We at Ming Chuan will forever pass on Founder Pao’s educational philosophy of attending to all students with parental care, support, and guidance, as we better the reputation of Ming Chuan and strive for excellence.
On this annual day of appreciation, we salute Founder Pao’s devotion to education with music and the recognition of three distinguished Ming Chuan alumni. This year, we have specially invited the OSA Chamber Choir and the Taipei Quyituan, along with MCU International College Choir and the great-granddaughter of Founder Pao to perform classic songs with beautiful music and heavenly singing. Moreover, we will recognize the achievements of three distinguished Ming Chuan alumni, Shalley Chen, Yi-Lan Yang, and Mi-Yo Wang. The MCU Family is proud of their outstanding performances.
You are sincerely invited to join us for the special annual celebration of thanks. Let’s gather again to pass on MC Family love, commemorate Founder Pao’s tireless work in education, reflect on all that Dr. Pao means to MCU and witness MCU’s innovations and progress.
