Two students receive Burger King McLamore Foundation scholarships

Two Maui students were among 33 graduating seniors statewide to receive a $1,000 Burger King McLamore Foundation scholarship.

The students are Katharine Ornelas of Maui Preparatory Academy and Jade Boren of St. Anthony Junior Senior High.

Ornelas of Lahaina will be attending George Washington University, majoring in history. Boren of Kahului will be attending Chapman University, majoring in communications.

The awards are given nationally, based on the students’ cumulative high school grade-point average.

Local Burger King stores accept year-round donations at front counter cashiers from customers for scholarships, and all contributions benefit students in Hawaii.
