HSS Gives Five West Youth $$ For Col­lege

MidWeek Islander (West Oahu) - - News -

Hawaii Self Stor­age vice pres­i­dent Shaun Sal­vador and com­pany mas­cot Mr. Safety awarded col­lege schol­ar­ships to 12 pub­lic high school stu­dents from across Oahu in a cer­e­mony last month at HSS’s Pearl City fa­cil­ity.

Among the 2010 schol­ars are Ky­ley Umetsu of Aiea, who plans to at­tend HPU and ma­jor in nurs­ing; Ni­cole Talion of Kapolei, who will at­tend USC and ma­jor in busi­ness eco­nom­ics; Kiera Hirayama of Moanalua, who will at­tend Creighton Uni­ver­sity and study nurs­ing; Sean Luster of Pearl City, who plans to at­tend Colorado State and ma­jor in mar­ket­ing; and Charissa Wa­ia­iae of Waipahu, who will ma­jor in Hawai­ian stud­ies at UHManoa.

Each re­cip­i­ent will re­ceive an­nu­ally re­new­able $1,000 schol­ar­ships to go to­ward their col­lege pur­suits over a two-year ( as­so­ci­ate’s de­gree) or four-year (bach­e­lor’s de­gree) pe­riod.

To date, HSS has com­mit­ted nearly $250,000 to this pro­gram since its in­cep­tion in 2004.

“ HSS un­der­stands the im­por­tance of ed­u­ca­tion in help­ing stu­dents de­velop into lead­ers who will make a dif­fer­ence in the com­mu­nity,” Sal­vador said. “We are com­mit­ted to con­tin­u­ing our schol­ar­ship pro­gram and to pro­vid­ing stu­dents with fi­nan­cial re­sources needed to help them achieve their ed­u­ca­tional dreams.”
