The award is in memory of Mark Traxler, son of James and Carol Traxler of Kailua-Kona. Ching graduated from Hawaii Preparatory Academy and was accepted at Rocky Mountain College in Billings, Mont. He was granted the BIRMA scholarship based on his high GPA, community involvement and desire to serve in the United States Coast Guard after college.

Ching is the son of Randy and Lori Ching of Waimea.
