Scholarship Honors Space Foundation CEO's Grandmother
Established in 2005 to create special professional development opportunities for teachers of Hawaiian or part-Hawaiian ancestry or teachers working with students of Hawaiian or part-Hawaiian ancestry and funded by Space Foundation Chief Executive Officer Elliot Holokauahi Pulham and his wife, Cynthia A. Pulham, the scholarship honors the memory of Pulham's grandmother, Lucy Enos, who was born in Pahala, Hawai'i, in 1898.

Veresan plans to use the scholarship to travel to Colorado Springs, Colo., this summer to attend the Space Foundation Space Across the Curriculum teacher professional development course "Astronomy Principles for the Classroom: Kinesthetic Astronomy."
