Guam - First Hawaiian Bank donated a check to the Guam Contractor's Association Trades Academy today at the main branch in Maite. For the bank's 40th anniversary last year, they pledged a dollar for every new account or service sold from April through December. A total of over $18,000 has been collected and will go toward scholarships for the Academy.

FHB senior vice president Laura Dacanay told KUAM News, "Because of the impending military buildup, we felt like this was a good opportunity to invest into our local residents to get the training needed to take advantage of that."

Last year, FHB donated over $40,000 to the University of Guam for scholarships.
