    Ntxoov Pos (Lis Pos) came to the U.S. in late 1979 with his family and a brother to Galveston, Texas.  He moved to San Diego after a month in Texas.  Prior to moving to Fresno, he was offered a job at the Fresno County Department of Public Health as a Health Education Assistance.  He attended English as a Second Language and High School Diploma classes at Fresno Adult School.  He graduated from the California State University, Fresno in 2000 with a Bachelor of Arts in Social Work.  In 1989, he accepted a job with the Fresno County Department of Social Services as a social worker and later was promoted to a Staff Analyst, managing refugee employment and social services budget and developing programs to help the refugees. He retired after thirty-two year of services to the public. He was recognized by the County of Fresno Board of Supervisors for his services rendered to the County.  Additionally, he is a Hmong legendary singer for over 30 years.  He will continue to sing and support issues and causes that are important to the Hmong community, especially the Lis Family.  He is currently the president of the Lee Education and Heritage Foundation in Fresno.

    My goals for the Lee USA are: (1) Identify the number of Lis family in the US, (2) establish a scholarship fund to support and promote higher education through donations from the Lis Entrepreneurs/Businesses and Doctors and (3) Identify the Lis’s group leaders in each state/city.
