Two graduating seniors from Waimea High School and one from Kaua'i High School are recipients of this year's Grove Farm scholarships that were presented during an evening reception at the Iliahi Estate in Lihue.

Each of the recipients were awarded scholarships valued at $20,000 each. The scholarships are awarded based heavily on community service. 

"Each of the scholars embody the spirit of Grove Farm with their willingness and commitment to serve," said Warren Haruki, president and CEO of Grove Farm. "We wish them continued success and best wishes as they embark on the next step of their journey." 

Receiving the awards from Waimea High School were Braden Kobayashi, the son of Jon and Leila Kobayashi, and Kari Correa, the daughter of Kirk and Michelle Correa. Zach Safford, the son of Tim and Laura Goodrich Maier, was the recipient from Kauai High School. The recipients were joined by their parents, previous scholarship recipients, and the Grove Farm ‘ohana in celebrating their accomplishments. 

Since the first scholarships were presented in 2010, Grove Farm has distributed $540,000 in scholarships.
