Two Lānaʻi High School graduates have been awarded $2,000 each, a laptop and a Patagonia backpack by the Kukui Mālamalama Scholarship program.

Funding for these scholarships was provided by the generosity of Pūlama Lānaʻi.

The scholarship award is administered by the Friends of Lānaʻi High & Elementary Schools Foundation on behalf of Pūlama Lānaʻi.  The Kukui Mālamalama Scholarships is intended to encourage students to further their education after high school.

The recipients are chosen for their good character and financial need to continue their education.

This year’s recipients are JR Agmata and Samantha Padron.
