Kalan Birnie and Angela Yasutomi are 2013-14 Malone Family Foundation Scholars, Seabury Hall has announced.
The award covers Seabury tuition, and the amount varies according to the financial need demonstrated by the student's family. It is funded by a $2 million endowment by the Malone Family Foundation. The Malone Scholarship is available only to those students not previously enrolled at Seabury Hall.
This is the school's second year of awarding this scholarship to gifted students who rank in the top 5 percent nationally and might not be able to afford a Seabury Hall education.

Headmaster Joseph Schmidt surmised that "the Malone Family Foundation endowment is not only a gift to the school but a gift to the Maui community. Seabury Hall and Maui can both take pride in this accomplishment."
