First Quarter Grades Arrive

The Habele Outer Island Education Fund has received first quarter report cards for the two Yap Outer Island scholars attending Bethania High School in the Republic of Palau.

“Our scholarship awardees are doing well and they have much to be proud of” explained Tom Lutte, Treasurer of the Fund.

The transition is incredibly challenging but the girls are excelling,” noted Alex Sidles, Habele Secretary, in regard to the progression from attending the isolated community schools on the Atoll of Ulithi to the competitive academic atmosphere at Bethania.

Details of the girls’ school year accomplishments and an overview of the Habele public school library and support projects will be included in the forth-coming 2006 annual report. Habele is tax exempt non profit organization that provides scholarships, awards, and grants to students from the remote Outer Islands of Yap State in Micronesia. More details at www.habele.org.
