Kekaulike Grad Awarded Arts Scholarship
The Maui Arts League has gifted a $1,000 scholarship to King Kekaulike graduate Amanda Heauser-Caires to further her college studies in fine arts.
The award is one of two available annually to high school seniors from Maui pursuing higher education in fine arts.
Heauser-Caires is finishing her first semester at the University of San Francisco, majoring in fine
arts with a minor in Japanese language. She is planning to become an art director after she graduates in 2023.
“At King Kekaulike, I was fully absorbed in clay sculpture–creating busts and sculpting portraits. Now, I am working with new mediums,” Heauser-Caires said in a press release.
Amanda says she is looking forward to developing her graphic arts skills at USF.
