The Mamoru and Aiko Takitani Foundation presented $96,000 in 2010 scholarships to 60 public and private high school seniors across the state this spring, including four outstanding students from Central Oahu schools.

Established by the makers of Hawaiian Host chocolates, the scholarship fund has awarded $1.5 million in college grants since 1993 to Hawaii students based on academic achievement, community service and financial need.


Area recipients include Kacie Lundy of Leilehua High ($3,000) and $1,000 grants to Leia Lendio of Waialua High, Melissa Monette of Mililani High and Samantha Hyde of Hanalani Schools.

Honorees were treated to a luncheon at Waialae Country Club with master of ceremonies Michael W. Perry and a keynote address from city Prosecuting Attorney Peter Carlisle.
