Two recent high school graduates on Maui are the recipient of the latest round of scholarship funds released by the Japanese Cultural Society of Maui.

King Kekaulike High School graduate Anna Gragas, and HP Baldwin High School graduate Stacie Cuadro, were awarded $1,000 scholarships each.

Gragas plans to attend Chapman University; while Cuadro will major in history or political science, and minor in Japanese, when she attends Linfield College.
