Hue Lor, one of Gillware’s data recovery engineers, won special recognition at the Hmong New Year Celebration in Minneapolis for his active role in supporting multiple generations across the Hmong community.
At a ceremony at the Metrodome, Lor was among the young professionals recognized as role models and leaders in the Hmong commnity. He spoke about what leadership meant to him and how he is working to keep Hmong culture vibrant.
“Leadership to me is about gaining education, good judgment and morals, then applying that wisdom to help others,” Lor said. “I was the first in my family to attain higher education and to work in technology. Now there is an opportunity to step up to the plate and become the future of the Hmong community – both to expand our boundaries and to protect our traditions.”
Lor handles many of the clean room operations necessary to allow a failed hard drive to function again. He has worked for Gillware for over two years, and graduated from Herzing University.
