Ryan Suenaga and Krispy Kreme

Before Apple II user and KansasFest alumnus Ryan Suenaga‘s passing, he expressed the wish to establish a scholarship for students who wanted to follow in his footsteps by studying social work. Now, thanks to some dedicated volunteers, that scholarship has become a reality, helping students of the Kapiolani Community College. KCC is part of the University of Hawai’i system, which includes Ryan’s alma mater, the University of Hawai’i at Manoa.

Anyone who wants to donate to the @rsuenaga Scholarship Fund may do so online with a credit card. Alternatively, checks may be made out to the University of Hawaii Foundation, with “@rsuenaga” noted in the memo field, and mailed to

If you are an Apple II user attending KansasFest 2011, you will also have the opportunity to donate by cash or check on the night of Thursday, July 21, when we host the Ryan Suenaga Memorial Krispy Kreme Night. Come enjoy some warm donuts and cold milk, as Ryan would’ve wanted. A donation jar will be available, with 100% of the proceeds going toward his scholarship fund.

More details about this scholarship will be shared as they become available.
