Mokihana Club’s scholarship deadline is Saturday

Students interested in entering The Mokihana Club’s Performing Arts Scholarship Competition must have all pertinent information in the hands of the club’s scholarship chair, Marilyn Oglesby, 828-1327, by Saturday.

Applications are available through teachers at all high schools and many private performing-arts teachers, or by calling Oglesby for more information.

At least one scholarship of $1,000 will be awarded.

The purpose of the competition is to encourage talented Kaua‘i students who are graduating this year to continue their studies at institutions of higher learning.

The Performing Arts Scholarship Competition will be held April 5, in the Lihue United Church parish hall at 10:30 a.m., and encompasses contestants in voice, musical instrumentation, dance and theater.

Since the establishment of the competition, $79,200 has been granted to 52 students.

The scholarship application, along with other requirements outlined in the application, must be postmarked by midnight Saturday.

The Mokihana Club members raise funds for their Performing Arts Scholarships with a Christmas Gala Luncheon and donations from individuals.

Their newly established nursing scholarships are funded exclusively by the club’s Women’s Golf Scramble, to be held this year on April 22 at Kauai Lagoons.

For information and applications, call Mary Davis, 742-8948.
