For over 30 years the annual Barney S. Fujimoto Scholarship has promoted academic achievement and excellence to Hawai`i Island high school students. Barney Fujimoto, a past president of HPM, strongly valued the importance of higher education. Today, HPM continues to express these same values through this scholarship.
Last year HPM Building Supply awarded scholarships to three seniors: Kellie Iwasaki (Waiakea High School), Tehani Jones (Kamehameha Schools), and Polanimakamae Kahakalau (Kanu o ka ʻĀina).
Scholarship applications are available at www.hpmhawaii.com, and must be completed with a resume and photo. The deadline for applications is April 1, 2014. For any questions or concerns, contact the HPM Marketing Department at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Since starting out 93 years ago as a small family-owned lumber yard, HPM Building Supply – now 100-percent employee-owned – has grown to include three-full service building supply centers and four lumber yards on the island of Hawai`i. The company manufactures pre-engineered trusses and wall-panels, metal roofing and pre-hung doors, and treats its own lumber. HPM also has locations on O`ahu and Kaua`i.
