Pueo Pilot Scholarships
Take Flight with Maui Prep and the Pueo Pilot Scholarships
Congratulations to Meghan Singh, 2105-2016 recipient of The Donald S. Burns Scholarship
The Donegan-Burns mission is to support children and education and the goal of the scholarship is for the recipient to be a well-rounded student who demonstrates leadership potential in academics and a desire to make a positive impact in other areas of the school; including fine and performing arts, community service, athletics and student government.
Meghan Singh is Maui Prep’s first recipient of The Donald S. Burns Scholarship. “We’ve always been a huge supporter of Maui Prep and this year, the Foundation is extremely excited to offer a four-year scholarship,” said Greg Burns, parent at Maui Prep and member of the Donegan-Burns Foundation Board of Trustees. “We’re very excited to have Meghan and her family at Maui Prep and look forward to seeing her success.”
Meghan Singh comes from a family of sports enthusiasts and so it is no big surprise that she excels at most everything she tries. The sport that quickly became her favorite was golf and she plays and practices at Kapalua Golf with coach Ben Hongo. Meghan has also competed with the US Kids Golf Las Vegas Tour, playing in tournaments in California and Nevada, where she received many 1st – 5th place finishes. She also enjoys running and has competed in several 5K races and has joined the school’s cross-country team.
The Singh family recently relocated to Maui from Nevada, “We decided to move to Maui because we wanted to enjoy a family-friendly lifestyle” says Meghan’s mom, Heather, “We could not think of a better place for Meg to practice golf and the boys to excel in their sports. We thought it would be a great adventure for our family.”
Meghan certainly excels in athletics, but deserving the award doesn’t stop there. In middle school Meghan took many advanced classes and spent many semesters on honor roll. She was nominated for a trip to Washington, D.C. two years in a row by two separate teachers for a leadership trip. She was active in her Las Vegas church and took part in Community Service. This past spring she gathered donations for the St. Jude orphanage outside of Las Vegas and The Shade Tree Women’s Shelter. Meghan is CPR certified and enjoys science, so much so that she hopes to be a veterinarian one day.
Meghan is a natural fit not only for Maui Prep’s core values, but also for The Donald S. Burns Scholarship and the school is pleased to welcome the Singh family into the ‘Ohana. “I am excited at this amazing opportunity and am honored that I was blessed with this scholarship,” said Meghan Singh. “I look forward to the next four years at Maui Prep!”
