A student attending KCC in medical studies that lives in Waiʻanae was presented with a $5,000 check to reward her for being vaccinated and entering the HI GOT VACCINATED.com contest. Angela Yao received the check from Ann Teranishi, American Savings Bank, President & Chief Executive Officer.

“American Savings Bank is committed to doing our part to stop the spread of COVID-19 and the Delta variant in our community and prevent further strain on our health care system,” said Ann Teranishi, ASB President & Chief Executive Officer. “We’re glad to support the #HIGotVaccinated campaign and encourage everyone to get vaccinated so we can end this pandemic nightmare.”

The winner of the $5,000 was asked why she was vaccinated and what she plans to do with the money. Angela Yao said she plans to share the winnings with her sister and family and save some for the future. “I felt it was important to get vaccinated to help protect my younger siblings and grandparents. It’s a personal choice, and I think everyone should get vaccinated so Hawaiʻi can get back to normal again,” said Angela Yao.

The first American Savings Bank winner of the $5,000 HIGotVaccinated contest was Steven Kam.

The final American Savings Bank winner of the $5,000 will be officially announced shortly.
