3HMONGTV NEWS (07/18/2019) – It is with great sadness to announce that our own Maikou Xiong who co-hosts with Padee Yang on Xav Paub Xav Pom has passed away this morning. Maikou Xiong began her involvement with 3HMONGTV more than 10 years ago. She’s been a great asset to our TV station with her reporting. Maikou earned her Master’s Degree in education and has worked in St. Paul Public School District. She was an author and was also featured in the book “Success That Looks Like Me” by Susan Kaying Pha. About two years ago, she was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer. She’s been battling with the disease ever since. We will miss Maikou Xiong for her work and involvement in the community.
Watch Maikou Xiong for her award recognition at the Annual Empowering Hmong Women night. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uQ7p8BtiCD4
