Realizing there are more expenses than just college tuition, the Plum Rogers Scholarship was set up to help aspiring college students majoring in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) fields pay for textbooks, supplies, and anything else needed to facilitate learning. This award was created to assist students interested in majoring in fields who also displayed a passion for helping others. Plum Rogers embodied this drive for excellence and service to others.
Jake’s interest in biomedical engineering, grade point average, and interest in assisting the community fit the criteria for the award. Jake, from Farrington High School in Hawaii, is ranked in the top five percent of his class with a 4.03 average. He tutored elementary students, volunteered with children’s drug prevention and use groups, and participated in and led community cleanups. He was also a member of the varsity swimming team and Math team.
Congratulations Jake! We look forward to seeing, and hearing, about great things from you.
