Thomas K. Kim Scholarship
Thomas K. Kim Engineering Scholarship sponsored by Compix Media, Inc. Born and raised in South Korea during WWII and Korean War, Thomas grew up next to a U.S. Army Base where his father ran a small electronic repair shop. As a child, he had the privilege of getting his hands on TVs, radios, and projectors which were rare commodities at the time. This influence has helped Thomas land a career at KBS, a major television broadcasting station where he served for twenty years and became the chief technical director. Thomas went on to start his own manufacturing business, Compix Media, which supplied on-air graphics for the 1986 Busan Asian Games and the 1988 Seoul Olympic Games. To fulfill his lifelong dream of living in America, he and his family moved to Los Angeles in 1995 where he set up his company’s global headquarters. As a follower of the American Dream, Thomas believes that life should be better and richer and fuller for everyone, with opportunity for each according to ability or achievement, regardless of age, sex and any other circumstances.
