Being awarded the Grove Farm Scholarship has meant so much to me. This scholarship has helped me to pursue my dreams of earning a civil engineering degree and competing at a prestigious Division I tennis program.

What have you learned about yourself while you’ve been away?

The one main thing that I have learned about myself while I have been away at school is that I really appreciate Kauai and all that it has to offer.
