Blaze Kalilikane Memorial Scholarship awarded to LHS graduate Taylor Ganer
LAHAINA – The 2020 Blaze Kalilikane Memorial Scholarship for $1,000 was recently awarded to Taylor Ganer, a 2020 Lahainaluna High School graduate. Taylor will attend the University of Colorado Colorado Springs.
Blaze was a dedicated employee of the Masters at Kaanapali Hillside who perished at the young age of 20 in an auto accident on Honoapiilani Highway, a few yards south of the Olowalu transfer station on the mauka side, on Dec. 19, 2012.
Established by Lois and Roger Ross to honor Blaze, they set up a scholarship funded by donations from owners, and Blaze’s family, to award a $1,000 scholarship to a Lahainaluna graduate.
Blaze was a 2009 Lahainaluna High School graduate.
It is their intention to keep this scholarship an annual event in perpetuity.
