Individual awards received included: Distinguished Pacific Regional Officer to Michael Breitwish Sr., Pacific Regional Coordinator’s Advisor Award to Kenoalani Dela Cruz and Paragon Advisor Award to Donala Kawa’auhau.

Conference attendees learned more about Phi Theta Kappa’s 2014-2016 Honors Study Topic, “Frontiers and the Spirit of Exploration” and about Phi Theta Kappa’s various programs and initiatives.  They worked in seminar groups, listened to a couple of speakers and competed in the Annual Pineapple Bowl.
