In the flag presentation ceremony for the 2019 summer vacation, Professor Wen-Ko Chiou, Secretary General of Chang Gung University, introduced the story of the Hero Satchel to the teachers and students who were about to depart for rural areas, mountainous areas and Malaysia during the summer vacation. He said, "The Hero Satchel carries the life story of the student who designs the bag, and it symbolizes the heroic journey each student is about to embark on. The journey will surely shape students to be a better version of themselves. It will also provide an opportunity for students to tap into a deeper and broader life experience. Students may gain valuable insight and wisdom after tackling all sorts of challenges and making tough decisions during the trip.”
