Scholarship and Internships
RANDY KALAHIKI HIGHER EDUCATION INCENTIVE GRANT
“Randy” stood tall among the community and ecumenical leaders who founded the Kualoa-He`eia Ecumenical Youth Project (KEY) in 1968. He encouraged youth and families alike to dream, work, and reach higher while keeping their roots firmly planted in their Ko’olaupoko community.
