Wong thanked Pelosi for 25 years of representing SF State and her support for issues important to the campus community, such as student financial aid, Pell grants, undergraduate research and student veterans. Pelosi is a longtime friend of SF State, and the University recently established a scholarship for student veterans, named in her honor.
