Kaua‘i students have it their way

Burger King’s Have It Your Way Foundation awarded Lyle Nemeth of Lihu‘e and Christen Wilson of Kapa‘a each a $1,000 scholarship. The Burger King Scholars Program awarded a total of 22 scholarships in Hawai‘i, according to a press release.

The students were selected for their outstanding academic achievement, along with other academic and community involvement criteria.

The scholarship was created in memory of Burger King co-founder, James W. McLamore. 

Scholarship awards help students offset the cost of attending college or a post-secondary vocational/technical school. Recipients are selected based on their grade point average, work experience, extracurricular activities and community service.
