Keahiahi, what do you hope to accomplish here at Leeward CC?

I’m so excited and so humbled to be part of the Leeward CC community.  I’m greatly looking forward to connecting with everyone on campus in an effort to provide the best resources to our students, staff, and faculty.  I also want to contribute to Leeward CC’s commitment to serving Native Hawaiian students and to creating a Hawaiian place of learning.
