Last school year, Waipahu High School’s Ian Henry Acosta was among the three students who received this prestigious recognition in the state of Hawaii.
On January 2020, the names for the 2020 Presidential Scholars candidates were released. Out of the 5,000 or so candidates chosen nationwide, 68 were from Hawaii, and five are from Waipahu High School.
Congratulations and good luck to (photo above, left to right) Dominick Quiamas, Carl Jude Domingo, Alicia Acosta, Cielo Anne Carnate, and Jerome Carl Castillo!
The 161 final Presidential Scholars will be chosen in May.
