24 college students receive financial aid from investor

TWENTY-FOUR college students on Thursday received $500 each in financial assistance from a Saipan hotel developer.

The financial aid was provided by Gary Han of Capitol Wonderland Hotel through Palette Inc.

“We want to contribute more for the local people,” Han said.

The company is currently focused on its hotel  construction project on Capital Hill, he added.

“Hopefully, when we finished the construction of the hotel, we can help more students complete their studies,” Han said.
