Wailea Community Association awarded scholarships totaling $28,000 to 10 Maui County seniors at a reception held in their honor.

For the 17th year, WCA’s Community Relations Committee reviewed numerous applications for their annual Scholarship Program, which offers Maui County’s high school seniors, an opportunity for financial assistance with their college education.

Applicants undergo an extensive application process which includes academic transcripts, letters of recommendation, school related awards, community service and a personal statement of their educational plans, career and personal goals.


“We are always impressed by the students and their families”, said Bud Pikrone, WCA General Manager, “so we like to celebrate the family as well as the student. They all work together so well to provide this opportunity that will one day benefit the student, their family and the Maui community. We are humbled to help them achieve their goal”.
