Scholarship Awarded to Maui High
A $1200 college scholarship was awarded to Wendy Pias by the Italian American
Club of Maui. Russ Taft, IACM Scholarship chairperson presented the award to Maui High School
graduating senior, Wendy Pias at the annual awards night in May.
Wendy and her parents were guests at the IACM June potluck meeting
and had the opportunity to meet and be congratulated by the members. Wendy shared her
educational plans and gave a presentation about her scholarship essay topic, “What Italian person,
who has lived in the time period of 1900 until the present, has impressed you for their
contribution to the world and please tell us why?” She will be attending the University of
Hawaii Manoa in the fall.
