2020 Kenneth Shioi Memorial Scholarship Awarded
Congratulations to the 2020 Kenneth Shioi Memorial Scholarship recipients Eunice Gaper and Julia Safford. Eunice will be a sophomore civil engineering major at the University of California, Berkley. She is from Kalaheo and is currently interning with Cahill Contractors in the Bay Area. Julia is a 2020 Kauai High School graduate and member of the National Honor Society. She will be majoring in civil engineering at St. Mary's College, Notre Dame, Indiana. The recipients were awarded the scholarships at the Contractors Association of Kauai (CAK) General Membership meeting in July.
The Kenneth Shioi Memorial Scholarship through the CAK was established by the Shioi family to honor the memory of the late general contractor, who was born in Makaweli, Kauai. Armed with an eighth grade education, Kenneth rose to become one of Hawaii's Top 25 contractors for many years, a ranking the company continues to hold today. He was also one of the first Oahu based general contractors to open a field office on Kauai.
