Our impact
Collectively, we have made great progress and growth, but what excites us the most is the enormous potential we have to do even more.

To the donors of the David and Julia Desha Scholarship, I would like to extend my warmest aloha and greatest appreciation with you all! I thank you for supporting me along my journey as I strive to achieve greatness within the hospitality industry. I am very honored to be able to receive this opportunity and represent my island home of Kauaʻi. As a college student, receiving support such as being an honored recipient goes a long way and motivates me to push harder! Mahalo nui loa for your generosity and for continuing to impact the lives of many Native Hawaiian youth and young adults each year!
