Maui Association's Budget Earmarked for Scholarships
Several graduating seniors from a Maui, Hawaii, high school have received scholarships totaling $18,800—courtesy of the Wailea Community Association. A reception was held at a local restaurant to honor the seven graduates. The Wailea Community Association is made up of businesses and homeowners who, as members, contribute to the annual scholarship fund; a portion of the association’s annual budget is earmarked for programs such as the scholarships and other charitable contributions for Maui County students.
The association’s Community Relations Committee reviewed numerous applications for their annual Scholarship Program, which offers financial assistance with college education for students who meet certain criteria, including good grades, letters of recommendation, school-related awards, community service, and a personal statement of their educational plans, career, and personal goals.
