Kauai Community College visit

With Kauaʻi CC Chancellor Helen Cox and Director of the Sustainable Living Institute of Kauaʻi Eric Knutzen

I had the pleasure of visiting our garden island campus, Kauaʻi Community College on Thursday where I visited with Chancellor Helen Cox, the administration, staff and students. Our pāʻina and talk story session with staff members, community leaders and students featured a “Healthy Choice” lunch that was prepared for us by Kauaʻi CC’s cafeteria manager, Melanie Bacio. The Healthy Lunch program offers students healthy meal options everyday. We had a farro salad with barbecue chicken or shrimp which was delicious and good for you.

During our afternoon open forum campus discussion, faculty, staff and students could ask me anything they wanted. They expressed their support of distance learning and working with other campuses toward common goals. I was exceptionally pleased to hear that because, as I have stated publicly many times, one of my goals during my presidency is to help UH become one of the best performing systems of higher education in the country.

Thanks to Chancellor Cox and Kauaʻi Community College, we’re on our way.
