First Scholarship Winner Announced
The Guy Toyama Memorial Scholarship Fund was created via the Hawaii Community Foundation in late 2013. This permanently endowed scholarship will be given every year to a student from Hawaii interested in applying their learning to problems related to the sustainability of our islands, the nation, and indeed the world.
The inaugural scholarship was recently awarded to Jon Brito. Jon grew up on Molokaʻi and is studying Electrical and Computer Engineering Technology at University of Hawaiʻi Maui College. Prior to Maui College, Jon was employed by the Americorps program and stationed at non-profit Ka Honua Momona International, restoring two fishponds on Molokaʻi. He wants to use his degree to pursue solar energy or hydrogen technologies, a perfect complement to Guy's vision.
John represents the first seed of many that will be planted to further the mission of the Guy Toyama Memorial Fund.
The Guy Toyama Memorial Fund steering committee is launching a legislative campaign to rename the Gateway Center. We're proposing the Guy Toyama Gateway Energy Center at NELHA. Show your support by signing the petition and passing the word on to others.
The 1st Annual Guy Toyama Day Celebration
took place on December 1st at the Wawaloli Beach Park.
