Annemarie, what do you hope to accomplish in your position here at Leeward CC?
I am thrilled to be joining the Leeward CC ʻohana! What excites me about this campus is the clear commitment to perpetuate a thriving academic and collaborative community. I am truly grateful for the opportunity to connect with the students, faculty, and staff here at Leeward. In an effort to contribute to the advancement of the educational goals of our Native Hawaiian students, I as the Hawaiʻi and Pacific Resource Librarian, hope to provide support and instruction in such a capacity that helps students have access to the services and resources that they need to succeed.
