National Disability Employment & Awareness Month

HawCC students celebrated National Disability Employment and Awareness month on October 18 – 19, 2011.

The Famous People with Disabilities Treasure Hunt was a great success.  Alumni HawCC students and students from the UH Performing Arts department walked the UHH and Manono campuses for HawCC students to get signatures for their scorecards to win prizes.  Students turned in their scorecards with signatures of famous actors and received prizes from many popular places in Hilo, which included: Big Island Candies, Sig Zane, Lyman Museum, Café 100, Palace Theater, E Claire’s Bakery, Ku`i & I Florist, Pizza Hawaii, and Hi International Fitness Center.

We thank the UH Performing artists and HawCC students for a successful celebration event.
