The Gin Family Association, as with most Chinese families and Clan Associations, has a culture of learning, in pursuit of excellence, public acknowledgement of excellence and importantly encouragement by the family and the Association.   Listed in this page is the Gin Sun Hall Benevolent Association of San Francisco, Merit Scholars 1984-1997.  This is not a complete list and it is our plan to build a more complete list, as our historical record permits.

An examination of the list will reveal that the decedents of Gin Sun Hall, just in the surrounding San Francisco Bay area alone, beyond high school, they have gone ahead to some well known places of learning. 

Well done one and all!
