Wow, I didn’t realize that I have not updated the blog in a long time. Alot has been going on and I’d like to update you all. First we are not closing the program, we are in the process of merging with the AEC program since there are so many similarities in the two programs. So you can get a degree in AEC and come back for another year and get your Construction Management Degree. Or get your Construction Management degree and come back for a year and get your AEC degree. Both programs will have a common first year. If you have questions call me or Marilynn Ito-Won at the college.

Scholarships – (recent ones anyway) Emily -$1,500, Matthew – $1,000, Ke Lu – $1,000, Lee Ann $ 1500, Dodge $ 1,000, Kevin $ 1,000. Way to go and Thanks to the CMAA, NAWIC, JCI, and Feng Yi Fong Scholarship for supporting our students. Awesome!

More information on the Hale Hilina’i- (House of trust, resilience, and reliance). The Hale Hilina’I facility was formerly a secure Juvenile Detention Center. It is in the process of being repurposed into a place where at risk youth can become empowered to make positive changes in their lives. The objective of the Hale Hilina’i facility rehabilitation project is to take the institutional space that exists and transform it into one that is welcoming and conducive to learning and personal growth. This will be the only facility of its type in central Oahu.
Hope to see you there!
Mahalo for your support of our community!
