On December 23, 2017, during our OCC qualifier 1, we gave out two awards to our National Chess Masters: Sean Lei and Harry Zhao!

Both players have been part of our Seneca Hill chess for years.

Sean achieved his National Master status back in February 2016! However, it took almost two years for CFC to have Sean’s name listed because they kept forgetting to do so. 🙂 Harry recently attained his title.

We would like to thank Sean and Harry for supporting our tournaments. In order to recognize their achievements, we are happy to present them with a scholarship of $100 each.

We hope that our students look to these role models and keep working hard! Next time, it may be your turn to become a chess master!

As of May 18, 2018.
