Assets Honors Longtime Trustee Russell Lau, Chairman and CEO of Finance Factors Ltd., and the Lau 'Ohana

We are excited to announce Trustee Russell Lau and his 'ohana will be honored at the Illumination Gala on Saturday, April 13, at The Pacific Club. Russell, the Chairman and CEO of Finance Factors, Ltd., and his wife, Connie, have been an integral part of our school community for nearly three decades. Russell joined our Board of Trustees 28 years ago when Russell and Connie's sons attended Assets. The Lau family's unwavering support has been pivotal in shaping the success of our school. Russell is always enthusiastic, sharing why he treasures Assets School.

"Great Teachers + Great Methods + Great Small Class Sizes + Great Students + Great Administrators + Great Board = Great School and Great Learning Environment 
Thank goodness there is a place like Assets School." 
---Trustee Russell Lau

Russell has been a fierce leader over the years, serving on numerous committees and supporting the Illumination Gala, Annual Fund, and our capital campaigns, as well as being instrumental in the Academy of the Pacific merger that resulted in our Alewa Heights campus for the High School.
