The Maui Firefighters Women’s Auxiliary awarded two scholarships to Maui students attending college in the Fall.

Organization leaders say the program is one of the many ways it gives back to the community and supports island youth.

This year, the Auxiliary selected two students out of an applicant pool of 12, which included a competitive process for selection based upon a variety of factors including grade point average, personal statement, activities and SAT scores.

Nevan Watanabe received a $1,000 scholarship and will use the funds while attending Oregon Institute of Technology, where he will continue to play baseball.  Quinn Shiraishi received a $500 scholarship and will use the funds at Colorado State University where she will be attending classes in the Fall.

Watanabe and Shiraishi are both graduates of Kamehameha School, Maui in Pukalani.
