Yesterday was the deadline to apply for our 2019 Leadership Scholarship. Students had to submit a resume and personal statement and write an essay about an issue in their community that concerned them.
We received applications from 108 students representing dozens of public and private high schools on four islands. We are so impressed by what our next generation of Hawaii leaders are doing in the community.
We really wish we could award more than one scholarship this year, but our goal is to save up for an endowment that can provide scholarships to Hawaii students in perpetuity. Our Scholarship Committee will have the tough task of narrowing the applications to one scholarship recipient!
We will be announcing our scholarship recipient in May and recognizing the recipient at our Scholarship Luncheon on Saturday, June 15, 2019 (mark your calendars).
