Ohia lehua gift from UH Hilo and Hawaii CC

Ohia lehua gift to President Greenwood

I am truly touched by the wonderful gift presented to me by UH Hilo Chancellor Don Straney and Hawaiʻi Community College Chancellor Noreen Yamane while I was on my campus aloha visit this week.

Don and Noreen gave me two ʻōhiʻa lehua trees that they planted in the indigenous gardens at UH Hilo’s ʻImiloa Astronomy Center.

Thank you for the honor Chancellors Straney and Yamane.

The administration, faculty, staff and students of Kauaʻi Community College are doing some exciting things. As you may know, Kauaʻi CC will be part of command and control for HiakaSat, which will fly on Hawaiʻi’s first space launch next year from Kauaʻi’s Pacific Missile Range Facility.

I had the pleasure of visiting recently with Ramona Kincaid, Kauaʻi CC Chancellor Helen Cox, Brandon Shimokawa, James Dire and Bruce Getzan, among others.

U.S. Senator Mazie Hirono visited our University of Hawaiʻi Cancer Center on August 6. She graciously took time out of her busy schedule to speak to the center’s faculty and staff and take a tour of our new, state-of-the-art facility in Kakaʻako. We also had a sit-down lunch on the center’s open-air veranda.

It was an enjoyable visit and we are grateful to Senator Hirono for spending time with us.

The University of Hawaiʻi Cancer Center’s architectural firm Shimokawa Nakamura, Inc. received several prestigious awards recently for its work on the beautiful UH Cancer Center.

Colin Shimokawa graciously paid me a visit on August 5th, to present the university with some of the awards, which included the Building Industry Association’s Renaissance Building and Remodeling Grand Award in the New Commercial Division.

Shimokawa Nakamura also received the National Association of Industrial and Office Properties Kukulu Hale Award/Green Building Award and the New Project–Public/Government Award.

Architect Jeff Nakamura designed the UH Cancer Center to create a work environment that would support innovation and collaboration while also maintaining an environmentally friendly setting and one that was culturally sensitive to the Kakaʻako area.

Jeff worked on the facility while stricken with cancer. He lived to see the center’s completion and was there for our grand opening. During the construction process, he told us that his work on the UH Cancer Center became very personal and it was his mission to finish the job.

He did. And he and his team were showered with accolades for their excellent work. I am grateful to Jeff and the team at Shimokawa and Nakamura.
