Molokai students awarded scholarships
Molokai High School graduates Ashawna-Leah Bicoy and Hulu Kekahuna Ah Van were each awarded $2,000, a laptop and a Dakine backpack by the Kukui Malamalama Scholarship program in memory of Kekuhaupio Likua.
The scholarship award is administered by the Friends of Molokai High & Middle Schools Foundation. The Kukui Malamalama Scholarships are funded by local residents who want to help students continue their education after high school.
Bicoy plans to study social work at Arizona State University. Ah Van will attend Bethany College in Kansas and major in athletic training.
Six schools statewide participate in the Kukui Malamalama Scholarship program, including Molokai High School, Hana High School and Lanai High School.
