Area Students Earn College $$

Hawaii Pacific University student Sara Teixeira of Kapolei and Windward Community College student Kristie Ann Gose of Waipahu are among 10 recipients of the Safeway Hawaii Foundation Scholarship from throughout the state. Each student was granted $1,000 for assistance in pursuing higher education.

“Education is key to the success and future of our community, which is why we continue supporting the Safeway Hawaii Foundation Scholarship,” said George Glukfeld, Safeway Hawaii district manager. “We are pleased to contribute to the educational journey of these outstanding students.”

The scholarship fund, which is administered by Hawaii Community Foundation, was designed to provide educational opportunities for current and past Safeway employees and their descendants. Students were selected based on academic performance, and preference was given to students planning to attend college in Hawaii.

“The Safeway Hawaii Foundation fund at the Hawaii Community Foundation is an important and much needed resource for Hawaii’s students continuing a higher education,” said Darcie Yukimura, Hawaii Community Foundation senior philanthropic services officer. “Through Safeway’s generous efforts, 10 students from across the state are benefiting from this program and are one step closer to their educational goals.”
