PYCC Scholarship Fund

The Opportunity to Reach A Higher Potential

From 2005 to 2014 the PYCC Scholarship Fund was funded solely by the Campbell Family. In 2015, the PYCC was offered funding to provide additional support. The scholarship opportunity is open to any active member of PYCC who is a high school senior, or has a GED, or is in their first year of college. Each candidate has to submit an application and be personally interviewed. Applicants who wish to attend vocational or trade schools are encouraged to apply, as well as those who wish to attend a college or university. Applications are released annually in February or March.

The Pa`ia Youth & Cultural Center announces our 2017 recipients of the PYCC Scholarship Fund.

This year 2 PYCC members were awarded:

Tucker Jahrmarkt was awarded $1,000. Tucker says that the nine years he has beena member at the PYCC sculpted the person he is today. Nearly everyday, he went to the PYCC to learn about photography, videography, skateboarding, and countless other things, and then mentored other youth. Tucker graduated in the top 20 of the 2016 class at King Kekaulike High School with a 3.922 GPA. He is currently pursuing his AA degree at UH Maui. His overall goal is to go into a career involving the skateboard industry.

Zachary Kaikaikaokeola Milanio (Kaika) was awarded $1,000. He graduated from King Kekaulike High School in 2016. Kaika is very involved with the PYCC StoneWave Skate Park, including teaching youth how to skate. He loves to work on cars, from tiny coupes to big hauling trucks. Ever since his grandpa helped him with his first oil change, he has not put the wrench down. His goal is to get ASE certified in Automotive and/or Diese, and is currently attending UHMC.


The Story of the PYCC Scholarship Fund

Paul and Cindy Campbell began the Campbell Family Scholarship Fund in 2005 for the purpose of assisting members of the PYCC with educational expenses beyond high school. The purpose of these scholarships is to assist PYCC members by providing funding for education and training that lead to a meaningful career. In 2015 another foundation pledged to support the PYCC and enabled extended support for the scholarship, and the name was changed to the PYCC Scholarship Fund.

Please contact us to find out more about the award, or to submit an application. Applications are accepted each spring, so please stay tuned for your opportunity!
