The Rotary Club of Kihei-Wailea recently awarded scholarships to four outstanding Maui high school students.
Seabury Hall student Rowan Mulligan received the Hawai'i Rotary Youth Foundation Scholarship. Proud parents John and Cheryl Mulligan of Ha'iku and younger sister Darby, also a Seabury Hall student, are constant supporters Mulligan's achievements.
"During her seven years at Seabury Hall, Rowan has blazed a path of excellence across the grade levels," one teacher commented.
Hawai‘i Rotary Youth Foundation Scholarship Committee Member Stuart Karlan and Scholarship Chair Gloria Lukens helped honor scholarship recipient Rowan Mulligan at a recent Kīhei-Wailea Rotary Club luncheon.
Teachers have also marveled at her work ethic, the depth and clarity of her thinking, and her "spectacular projects," including turning her personal bout with lupus into a Lupus Awareness Fundraiser, in which she became a spokesperson to provide information about the disease.
Mulligan will use her scholarship grant at Claremont McKenna College in Southern California.
The club also awarded merit scholarships to three graduating seniors for exceptional achievement in academics and community service--Isaiah Maddela of Baldwin High will attend Ohlone Community College Fremont, California; Collee-Ann Kawamoto will attend Washington Community College; and Carter Umetsu of Seabury Hall will attend Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri.
