This fun community event honors Bieni Kohler-Johnson '83, an HPA alumna who passed away in 2009 after a valiant battle against breast cancer. Proceeds benefit the Bieni Kohler-Johnson '83 Memorial Fund at HPA, as well as a local breast cancer support organization chosen by the HPA student service program. 

The Bieni Kohler-Johnson '83 Memorial Fund is intended to help a deserving female HPA student follow her dreams. It is awarded to someone not only gifted in athletics, academics, or the arts, but who understands her responsibility to work hard to develop and share those gifts. In the spirit of namesake, the scholarship is awarded to a young woman who is an inspiration to others, who demonstrates a shining sincerity of commitment and unhesitant willingness to go the "extra mile" for friends, family, or a worthy cause. This year four outstanding young women received a scholarship from this Fund.

Thank you for supporting The Bieni Kohler-Johnson '83 Memorial Fund, and continuing her legacy by honoring deserving female students at HPA with this scholarship.
