Living our company motto
KAANAPALI – Kaanapali Land Management Corp. (KLM) is dedicated to living up to its motto: “Honoring our roots. Preserving our spirit.” It is the spirit of giving back to one’s community that is the heart of this long-time kama’aina company.
Recently, KLM awarded Lahainaluna High School senior Anthony Simon with its Kaanapali Land Management Scholarship. Administered through the Lahainaluna High School Foundation, this annual scholarship is awarded to a student interested in pursuing agriculture, architecture, engineering or a related field.
Anthony received a $1,000 scholarship check to help with expenses while attending the University of Hawaii at Manoa, where he plans to focus on a math and/or science major. In addition to an impressive academic record during high school, he was also active in various extracurricular activities: a member of the National Honor Society, Japanese Club, Robotics Club, and Anime Club. Anthony also played in Lahainaluna High School’s Marching Band, Honor Band, and Hawaii All-State Marching Band.
KLM is also dedicated to supporting our island’s school athletes. For the past two years, the company has contributed to all Maui high school student-athletes through the Maui Interscholastic League (MIL) “Save Our Sports” program. The SOS donations are used to cover league expenses, including transportation and facility supplies and equipment.
Another community program that is helped by KLM is the Friends of Lahainaluna Football Inc. This nonprofit operates to provide support for amateur sports, actively fostering local and state football competition at the high school level and below. This year, due to the overwhelming support of the Maui community, Friends of Lahainaluna Football was able to award four $1,500 scholarships! This year’s recipients are: Jared Rocha-Islas, who is attending the University of Nevada, Las Vegas; Brandon Kaina, who is attending UH Maui College; and Makoa Filikitonga-Lukela and Connor Mowat, who are attending Western New Mexico University.
But, without question, what the company is proudest of is its employees and the contributions they’ve made to our community over the years.
