"We are extremely grateful for Young Brothers / Hawaiian Tug & Barge scholarship support," says Vance Roley, Dean of the UHM College of Business. "We share a common vision in helping Neighbor Island students obtain a quality MBA so that they can one day make valuable contributions in their own communities."

We are continuing our commitment to supporting neighbor island communities," Hong continued.
