Molokai senior awarded Foodland scholarship.
Molokai High School graduate Kealohapauole “Aloha” Will was awarded a $2,000 college scholarship from Foodland Super Markets as part of its Shop for Higher Education program.
Will said she was “ecstatic” when she learned the news. “College is very expensive, and I just want to get as much as I can to help my mom,” she said.
This fall, Will will attend University of Hawaii at Manoa, where she has been accepted into the pre-law program. After graduation, she hopes to practice environmental or animal rights law. “That’s my passion,” Will said.
Will was awared the scholarship based on academics, community service and character. She was the MHS Class of 2010 Salutatorian and volunteered at the Molokai Humane Society and with MHS’ LEO – Leadership, Experience and Opportunity — community service club.
This year, Foodland awarded $220,000 in scholarships to 110 high school seniors around the state. The students and their families were honored at an awards ceremony in Honolulu on May 15.
