Aloha HawCC Faculty & Staff,
April is National Community College Month
Nationally, community colleges have been in existence since 1901. Since 1941, Hawaii Community College has proudly served our community for 70 years, providing credit and non-credit programs island-wide. As we continue to expand and move forward, with renovations to the Manono campus, the building of Palamanui, and the long-term vision of a Komohana campus, let us continue to achieve excellence as we have always done, by working together in the spirit of Kauhale.
Early registration begins on April 11th
Please encourage your continuing students to take advantage of this perk and register early.
Advisory Council Meeting
HawCC will be hosting the advisory council meetings on April 19th for all CTE programs. These councils play an essential role in advising their respective programs of the training needs and new developments in the field. Council members include: employers, alumni, and others knowledgeable in these career and technical areas.
Save the Dates
In May we have three very important activities occurring and I would like to invite you all to get involved by volunteering for or attending these student-focused events.

Don’t forget that Friday, April 22 is a holiday. Enjoy, relax, and make the most of your three-day weekend.
