PAPAKŌLEA, HI – Two next-generation leaders from Papakōlea will receive scholarships totaling $2,000 at the Fourth Annual Papakōlea Pā‘ina today. Education has been a top priority of the Papakōlea community, dating back to the opening of their first pre-school in 1942.  Through support from all Pā‘ina artists, Kula No Nā Po‘e Hawai‘i, the Papakōlea Community Development Corporation (PCDC), Possibility Place for Christian Fellowship & Ministry, and philanthropists in community, the Papakōlea Community Scholarship Program was established in 2017.  Since then, 12 scholarships have been disbursed to our next generation leaders of Papakōlea.   Congratulations to the 2019-2020 Scholarship Recipients!
