Nick joined Mayor Adams, former Mayor Tom Potter, and guests from across the Northwest on New Year's Eve for the Cambodian-American Community of Oregon's (CACO) 2009 Khmer Heritage Night. The event also marked CACO's 20th Anniversary, and included performances by the Cambodian Dance Troupe of Oregon and the CACO troupe.
The evening also featured a surprise presentation of the President Award to Nick's wife, Portland State University Professor Patricia Schechter. Professor Schechter was honored for her work with CACO's oral history workshops and their KRT2 forum.
