High school journalists receive scholarships

by Kalamalama staff


The HPU College of Communication awarded three scholarships to local students at the Hawai‘i Publisher’s Association High School Journalism Awards Banquet April 29 at the Pagoda Hotel. Teresa Bell of Waialua High School, Jermel-Lynn Quillopa of Moanalua High School, and Krystal Duldulao of James Campbell High School were honored, along with dozens of other journalism students from across the state.


Teresa Bell is the daughter of Teresita Bell and a senior at Waialua High School, where her newspaper advisor is Gail Kuroda. Teresa is an honor student and a starter on both the varsity basketball and volleyball teams. A student leader since her freshman year, she was last year sergeant-at-arms for the entire school assembly and is this year's student body treasurer and senior class representative. She is employed at the Aloha General Store and volunteers as a care provider for children at her church.

Jermel-Lynn Quillopo is the daughter of Imeda Ulangca and Jerry Quillopo. She is a senior at Moanalua High School where her newspaper advisor is Liane Voss. Jermel has been an honor student for the past six years and is active in several clubs: Interact, Science, Spanish, and Surf. Jermel serves as student association senator and chair of the Student Association Concerns Committee. She has been on the girl's wrestling team for the past four years. In her spare time, she volunteers for the Kokua Kalihi Valley Health Center and St. Theresa’s Church.

Krystle Grande Duldulao is the daughter of Millie and Fernando Duldulao. A senior at James Campbell High School, Crystal is an honor student, a member of student government, and a colorguard. She is active in the Leo Club, the Hiking Club, National Honor Society, and the Toastmasters Club Youth Leadership Program.

Normally the University, in conjunction with the Hawai‘i Publishers Association, awards four scholarships. “One student declined,” said Varner, “but these three have all confirmed that they will enroll at HPU this fall and will accept the scholarships.”

The scholarships are renewable 75 percent tuition waivers that can be applied to every semester until the undergraduate degree is completed. Students may major in any one of the six undergraduate degrees offered by the College of Communication: advertising, communication, journalism, corporate communication, public relations, or visual communication.
