American Samoa Bar Association Grants Annual Scholarship


The American Samoa Bar Association is proud to announce that Janelle Etelagi has been awarded the ASBA Legal Education Scholarship for 2011. Ms. Etelagi is a graduate from Tafuna High School. She received a BA in Political Science at the University of Hawai’i at Manoa with a minor in English, and an MS in Criminal Justice Administration at Chaminade University of Honolulu. She is currently in her first year at the William S. Richardson School of Law at the University of Hawai’i. We are very pleased to present Ms. Etelagi with a scholarship for $1,000.00 to help her in her studies, and we are excited to see her join the legal profession. Congratulations Janelle!

Every year the American Samoa Bar Association presents its Legal Education Scholarship to a law student who has graduated from an American Samoa high school or has personal ties to American Samoa. The scholarship is a key part of the Bar Association’s efforts to promote the legal profession in the territory, and to help home-grown students become licensed attorneys.

Update: Corrections made.
