38th Annual MPIAA Scholarship Golf Tournament

Posted on July 12, 2017 by Heidi Bow

The Mid-Pacific Institute Alumni Association's 38th Annual Scholarship Golf Tournament was held on Friday, June 30, 2017 at the Hawaii Prince Golf Course in Ewa Beach, and it was a beautiful day for golf! At 11:30 AM, all 234 golfers headed out to their designated holes for the shotgun start with one thing in mind... to have fun. We had strong alumni support this year with a total of 98 alumni golfers and 20 all-alumni teams. The day concluded with a dinner reception in the clubhouse where prizes were given to various teams, and recent graduate and alumni scholar, Aaron Ginoza '17 spoke about how his alumni scholarship gave him the opportunity to grow as an individual at Mid-Pacific. Aaron will be attending the University of Southern California next year!

Thank you to all of our wonderful corporate & individual sponsors & donors, in-kind donors, food and beverage vendors, all 80 dedicated volunteers, the Mid-Pacific Golf Team, and this year's golf committee, the MPIAA was able to raise over $42,000 for alumni scholarships. MPIAA's Alumni Scholarships include those awarded to current students, Jaren Saiki '18, Evan Nishida '19, Cameron Nishida '19, and also 14 students receiving our new Legacy Scholarship (click here for more information about our Legacy Scholarship). All scholars are extremely grateful for the effort that has been put forth to make this event a success.
