Senior Victoria Lee has won a well deserved scholarship.

The  University of Hawaii Regents award scholarships for 20 graduating seniors annually which covers tuition for four years of undergraduate study, $4,000 annually and a one-time travel grant of $2,000.

“I applied for the scholarship because I needed to find a way to pay for my college tuition and reduce the financial burden on my mother’s shoulders. I’ve seen my mother work hard to pay for my school tuition at school, so by applying for the Regents scholarship, I get the chance to hopefully alleviate her burden,” said Lee.

Lee will be the first in her family to go to college.

Lee’s high school record reveals a hard-working, much involved student who still managed excellent grades. She is president of the Leo club and holds leadership positions on the LIFE team, Na Leo Hoonani Liturgical Corps and National Honor Society. She also serves as a volunteer for Hawaii Literacy, a partner agency of Aloha United Way dedicated to improving Hawaii’s literacy skills.

Lee plans to double major in Second Language studies and Chinese and looks forward to UH Manoa’s wide variety of language classes.

“I want her to enjoy the life as a college student that I was not able to experience myself,” said Tammy Leung, Victoria’s mother.

Alumna Katie Lee was named a Regents scholar in 2014.
