Over 300 alumni gathered to meet and greet, discuss current topics, praise community leaders, and honor the heritage of Asians at Yale.  Gary Locke '72, former U.S. ambassador to China and former governor of Washington, Yale Law professor Amy Chua, jazz pianist Vijay Iyer '92 and Pepsico CEO Indra Nooyi '80 MBA were among the speakers at special events. The alumni group also paid tribute to Yung Wing 1854, Yale's first Asian graduate.
