‘Iolani’s 17th Annual Named Scholarship Breakfast

Words are not enough to express ‘Iolani Schools gratitude for donors who provide scholarships that directly benefit students. Yet the annual ‘Iolani Named Scholarship Breakfast is one venue that offers students the opportunity to meet and thank scholarship representatives in person. Scholarships are vital to a school like ‘Iolani where diversity and opportunity are hallmarks of its educational mission.

Headmaster Dr. Val Iwashita ’67 expresses his gratitude for support of ‘Iolani’s scholarship programs. See more photos from the Scholarship Breakfast »
So on September 10, more than 300 representatives of named scholarships and students who are scholarship recipients gathered for a breakfast on the lawn of the Headmaster’s residence. Dr. Val Iwashita ’67 and his wife Cynthia greeted guests with support from the Institutional Advancement Office. Members of the school’s Board of Governors along with administrators also attended the event. Students happily shared stories about their school and extracurricular activities with scholarship representatives.
