Congratulations, 2021-2022 Charles R. Kendall and Russell K. Okata Scholarship Recipients!

June 10, 2021

Congratulations to the 2021-2022 Charles R. Kendall and Russell K. Okata Scholarship recipients! Both scholarships are available to HGEA members and their dependents who are attending or plan to attend a college, community college or university, or vocational, trade or other post-high school study on a full-time basis.

Following is a short message of gratitude from first-time scholarship recipient David "Nainoa" Visperas, a 2021 Kamehameha School graduate:

Thank you, HGEA for awarding me this generous scholarship! Your gift will allow me to continue on from Kamehameha Schools Kapālama to Stanford University this Fall. I know I will gain valuable tools and experiences so I can advocate for voices unheard. I WILL return home and 'pay it forward' to help lift up the next generation and make a significant impact on our people of Hawaii.”

HGEA has been helping students achieve their higher education goals since 1966. Thank you to all of the committee members, volunteers and donors for their time, expertise and generosity needed to make this scholarship program a continuing success.
