2011 AIA Maui Scholarship Recipients

Congratulations to this year's AIA Maui Scholarship Recipients!

A Seabury Hall graduate and a University of Hawaii-Mānoa doctoral architecture student were named the recipients of the $1,500 American Institute of Architects scholarships.

Darcy M. Keester of Seabury and Kody K. Kato of UH- Mānoa were selected to receive the AIA Maui/Joint AIA Washington, D.C. Chapter’s Architectural Scholarship Awards.

Keester, the daughter of Stuart Keester and Judy Egger, of Makawao, will attend the University of British Columbia in Vancouver.

While at Seabury, she was on the Headmaster’s List, played four years of varsity soccer, was a four-year member of the dance program, company level, and participated in student government and Maui Business Simulation.

Kato, the son of Dennis Kato and Vicki Ann Nagata, of Kahului, is enrolled in the architectural doctorate program at UH-Mānoa.  He had the winning design in the 28th Space Prize Competition for International Students and has been awarded the AIA Honolulu Awards of Merit and Excellence and the Energy Pioneer Award in collaboration with the Center for Smart Building and Community Design.  He has been published in the UH-Mānoa Student Work Journal and 2010 Space Magazine.

Scholastic achievement, extracurricular activities and financial need were the criteria used by the selection committee of Marie Kimmey, Calvin Higuchi, Wendy Fujinaka, Margaret Sutrov and Alvin Yoshimori.

The recipients will receive their awards at a luncheon to be held July 27 at the Cary & Eddie’s Hideaway with University of Hawaii Maui College Chancellor Clyde Sakamoto as the guest speaker.
