The HBTA presented Kromann-Jensen with a first place $2,000 scholarship at the group’s May meeting at the Radisson Waikiki Prince Kuhio Hotel. In addition to the scholarship, Kromann-Jensen, who hails from Svendborg, a provincial port town of Denmark, won the Adam Maruyama Notebook Award. This award was given to an exemplary student in addition to a $250 cash prize to be used for any of the winner’s school-related expenses.

Kromann-Jensen, who holds a 4.0 GPA, emphasized in his thank you speech, how important it is to give scholarships to students as it “motivates us to continually strive for excellence.” Marsha Wienert, the Tourism Liaison representing the state of Hawai‘i, reiterated that point in her keynote address and focused on the current state of federal and state legislation affecting Hawai‘i’s tourism industry.

The HBTA Scholarship Program offered a total of four scholarships to outstanding college or university students enrolled in a TIM program within the state of Hawai‘i. HBTA scholarships are awarded on an annual basis, and students are nominated to represent their school by the TIM faculty.

HBTA is the local chapter of the National Business Travel Association (NBTA), which represents the interests of over 2,000 corporate travel managers and travel service providers worldwide.
