Molokai Senior Receives Gromet Scholarship
Molokai High School senior Whitney Apo’s college dreams are now a bit closer thanks to a scholarship from the Gromet Foundation.
Apo was among 25 Gromet Scholarship winners who were honored on Dec. 27 in Honolulu. She will receive a $20,000 4-year scholarship, which she plans to use in pursuing a degree in nursing at Southern Oregon University this fall.
The Gromet Foundation was founded in 1990 by Mr. Ben Gromet, a well-known businessman in Honolulu, in memory of his late wife, Janice. The scholarship program began in 1993 and is currently one of the largest college scholarship providers in Hawaii
