Three Big Island Students Receive HAB Scholarships
Three Big Island high school graduates are among 26 recipients of scholarships awarded by the Hawai’i Association of Broadcasters, Inc.
The HAB has awarded a total of $48,500 in academic scholarships to high school seniors and college students with a minimum 2.5 grade point average and a career goal to work in the broadcast industry in Hawai’i.
All three students are 2014 graduates. Cashman Aiu, now attending New York University, and Kamakalia Waipa, attending the University of Hawai’i at Hilo, graduated from Kamehameha-Hawai’i. Walter Disney, a Hawai’i Preparatory Academy alum, is the other recipient. He is attending Northern Arizona University.
In addition to a 2.5 grade point average and a desire to work in Hawai’i’s broadcast industry, candidates interested in the HAB scholarship were required to complete an application form, including a letter of recommendation, and were also scheduled for a personal interview with the scholarship committee.
The Hawaii Association of Broadcasters, Inc. is made up of radio and television stations and others whose common goal is to support and benefit the local broadcast industry.
