Name: Josephine Kehaulani LeeHong-Mauga (everyone calls me Kehau)
Title/Department: Office Assistant III in the Office of the Chancellor/External Affairs & Relations
My Hometown: Ka’u/ Puna/ Hilo, Hawai’i
My favorite things about HawCC: The wonderful Early Childhood Education staff has helped me become a teacher in the field of Early Childhood Education for the last 20 plus years. I have also been blessed with receiving my license in Practical Nursing from HCC. I have also been here on campus as a Program/Public Relations Assistant with Na Pua No’eau- Native Hawaiian Children’s Center. Just recently, I have been on board as a staff member working in the Chancellor’s Office as an Office Assistant III within the realm of External Affairs and Relations. I am truly, truly thankful. Mahalo for welcoming me “home” again to the “Kauhale.”
My Hobbies & Interests Are: Spending time with ‘ohana. I have a love for education and enjoy reading. I truly am happy at the beach, playing volleyball or tennis, running and going to the gym — “Curves”
If You Came To Visit My Office You Would See: INFORMATION, INFORMATION, INFORMATION.
I Love The Big Island Because: It is my “One Hanau” or Birthplace. Such a gift of a place created by Ke Akua.
In My Free Time I Like Too: Spend time with ‘ohana and travel around our Hawaii island, especially to visit Tutu in Keauhou who is 93 years young.
