Earlier this year, I announced that we would be introducing two new $2500 scholarships for our members in honor of our 70th anniversary as an association. Candidates for this scholarship comprise of sons and daughters of an HLTA member employee who are graduating from high school, admitted to a university, college, or vocational institution, and holds a cumulative GPA of 3.2 or higher. I am proud to announce that the inaugural HLTA Member Scholarships have been presented to Cameron Foy of ‘Iolani School and Sydney Brady of Kauai High School.
Cameron received the HLTA Allied Member Scholarship. She is the daughter of John and Terry Foy. John Foy is an Area Sales Manager at Enterprise Rent-a-Car. Cameron is an avid volunteer in her community and her school, who feeds the homeless with the Holy Trinity Church, presents guided tours for newly admitted ‘Iolani students, and serves the community through her school’s Interact Club, in addition to keeping up with her rigorous coursework. Cameron currently works as a tennis coach for the 'Iolani summer school tennis program. She will be attending the University of San Diego and intends to major in business.
Sydney received the HLTA Active (lodging) Member Scholarship. She is the daughter of Chuck and Cheryl Brady, who both work at the Kauai Marriott Resort as Director of Human Resources and Director of Revenue Strategy, respectively. In her senior year, Sydney was president of her school’s Health Occupation Students of America Club, National Honors Society, and Student Government Association. After spending a summer job-shadowing at Wilcox Hospital, she now aspires to become a general surgeon. Sydney is a valedictorian of Kauai High School’s class of 2017 and will be attending the University of Notre Dame.
This year HLTA awarded over $60,000 in scholarships, including the Citizen-Scholar Awards, the HLTA Ho‘okipa Scholarship, the Clem Judd Memorial Scholarship, Hawaii Lodging & Tourism Pouhana Hokele Scholarship, among others.
