Trolling for scholarships

The Hawaii Island Contractors’ Association and its co-sponsors, Bank of Hawaii and Honsador Lumber, recently awarded two $750 scholarships to second-year Hawaii Community College carpentry majors. For 15 years, the three entities have sponsored a Scholarship Trolling Tournament to fund the awards for students pursuing a degree in a construction-related field.
