Pago Pago, AMERICAN SAMOA — While it's graduation season, COVID-19 has made it difficult for many things to happen such as a full ceremony, traditional military enlistments, and scholarship signings.

However, at ASTCA, they are proud to be able to provide both a Conference Room and reliable connection for these two students to be able to sign their scholarship offers virtually with their College recruiter/Coach Thomas Young (present via Zoom).

Along with the students were their parents, local coaches (Melisha Purcell & Joshua Ma'alona), and our Acting CEO, Fala Sualevai.

LEONE FAIAI JR. (pictured in brown), from the villages of Matu'u and Tafuna, is a graduate of Samoana High School. Sione Bishop Jr, from the villages of Aunu'u and Auasi, is a graduate of Fagaitua High School.

Both are the first male athletes from American Samoa to receive scholarships for Volleyball. They will both be attending Missouri Baptist University, Home of the Spartans!

We wish them all the best!
