Hawaii’s booming self-storage industry is sharing its success by supporting high school graduates in college, as seen during a recent scholarship presentation by Hawaii Self-Storage at its Pearl City facility.

The company presented a dozen Oahu students with renewable $1,000 grants toward associate or bachelor’s degrees.

Recipients include Bryson Sevilla of Leilehua High, who will study communications at UH Manoa, and Jaimee Sambrano of Mililani High, who will study biology and pre-med at Oregon State.

Selection was based on winning essays from public high school seniors living in areas served by the company - Kaimuki, Pearl City and Salt Lake. They also get a free month of storage to help them with their college transition.

Hawaii Self Storage has committed more than $200,000 locally to the scholarship program as part of its Community Pride initiative.
