Diamond Head Theatre is grateful for the following scholarship opportunities for our summer musical theatre camp from our generous donors.
The Zachary Fujisaki Mar Passion Memorial Scholarship
Zachary was a participant in DHT’s MTE Program from 2006 – 2008. A young man with many challenges, Zach made every effort to achieve in school, theatre and sports. His passion and zeal for theatre were notable traits. In 2008, Zachary suddenly passed away. To honor and remember Zachary, his parents started the Zachary Fujisaki Mar Passion Memorial Scholarship. Each year, the scholarship is awarded by the MTE instructors to the MTE PM student who, over the summer, demonstrated the qualities and characteristics that exemplify those evidenced by Zachary, things like a positive attitude and a passionate heart. The scholarship is only redeemable for the following summer.
