The Mamoru and Aiko Takitani Foundation presented nearly $100,000 in scholarships last month to 61 public and private school seniors across the state, including four outstanding students from Central Oahu schools.

Established by the makers of Hawaiian Host chocolates, the scholarship fund has awarded more that $1.3 million in college grants since 1993 to Hawaii students based on academic achievement, community service and financial need.

Area recipients of $1,000 scholarships include Chelsea Marie Balon of Waialua High School, Dominic Macanas of Leilehua High, Chelsey Ann Nakanishi of Mililani High and Wen-Ying Lin of Kahuku High.

Honorees were treated to a luncheon at Waialae Country Club with master of ceremonies Michael W. Perry and a keynote address from U.S. Attorney Edward Kubo Jr. on “Striving toward Success always Requires One to Give Back to One’s Community.”
