Aside from her academic achievements, Fu Kuan-chen also volunteers for various causes in her spare time, the teacher said, such as aiding the Huashan Social Welfare Foundation with receipt lottery ticket collection, while also volunteering at a library.

School principal Wang An-shun (王安順) said in response that the school gave weight to the building of students’ moral characters.

“[Fu] Kuan-chen’s beneficence is indeed praiseworthy and the school is planning to recognize [such exemplary behavior] in mid-July, along with a citation for grand merit,” Wang said.
