Who Gives?

Kahului, HI – Aspiring musicians at the University of Hawaiʻi Maui College have a new student scholarship thanks to a small act of kindness by a Hawaiʻi music legend nearly 40 years ago. That’s when Dr. Laurel Lee Roberts, then a college student herself, sat on the beach outside the Halekulani Hotel in Waikiki, to hear the beautiful operatic range of Emma Veary.
