Jahrmarkt is a student at University of Hawaii Maui College. He’s pursuing a liberal arts degree and is considering diving deeper into sociology, psychology, and music as these subjects are particularly intriguing to him. Aside from school, his primary interests include skateboarding, music, film, photography, and other outdoors activities and art forms. Jahrmarkt is actively participating in film projects, searching and studying music, and continuing to follow his passions along all branches of skateboarding.
Milanio (Kaika) is pursuing a career in auto mechanics and while taking classes at UHMC that will support his goal. He also works at High Tech in Paia and teaches skate boarding at the PYCC StoneWave Skate School.
This is the second year that Jahrmarkt and Milanio have won this scholarship.
