Three BHS seniors win Art Maui scholarships

Three Baldwin High School seniors were each awarded $2,000 scholarships to use at the college of their choice to pursue studies in art. The three students are Ellissa Bio, Keisha Mateo and Alexandra Underwood, and all study with Janet Sato in the Advanced Placement Art Program at Baldwin High School.

The awards were presented on April 20 by Art Maui Board of Directors President Jefferson Stillwell and Scholarship Committee Chairwoman Janet Allan.

The students’ artwork was on display in the Alexa Higashi meeting room at the Maui Arts & Cultural Center.

Ron Kowalke, juror for Art Maui 2013, selected the three students based on their portfolios and applications when he was on the island April 4-6 to select pieces for Art Maui 2013.

Ten students from five high schools on Maui submitted portfolio entries.
