We’d like to offer up our congratulations to Shyanne Matsumoto as our 2010 Fujita & Miura Public Relations’ (FMPR) Scholar.
Matsumoto of Kalaheo is a graduating senior at Kaua`i High School with a 3.651 grade point average (GPA). She has been accepted to Oregon State University where she will pursue a double major in secondary education and chemistry. Outside of school, Matsumoto has been an active volunteer and an effective leader.
This year we had the distinct honor to award scholarships to two deserving and extraordinary recipients, Benjie Baclig and Shelcie Takenouchi. Shelcie is in Southern California, where she will attend USC to pursue a master of arts degree in strategic public relations. Benjie just graduated as the valedictorian from Waimea High School on Kaua'i's Westside so we were able to take him and his family to breakfast to meet him and learn what fired his ambition to be great.
