Parker School has announced the recipients of the 9th Grade Richard Smart Scholarships and the middle school Ulu Pono Scholarships for the 2014-2015 school year.

Three new students and one current student were selected for each type of scholarship for which each will receive $8,500 annually toward tuition during their Parker careers.

Both types of scholarships are based on financial need. Ulu Pono winners were also selected for academic promise, strong character and passion for an area of interest. The Richard Smart scholars were picked according to merit and exceptional academic potential.
