The U.S. Department of Education awards $31 million in five-year grants for Native Hawaiian serving programs at UH campuses across the state.
Also this year, for the first time the program will make a limited number of copper roses. Real roses will fade after a few days, but these roses will last forever.
The roses will be available at Honolulu Community College in Building 17 on Thursday, February 14, starting at 9:30 a.m. until they are sold out. These one-of-a-kind sheet metal roses make a special Valentine’s gift for only $5 each, and a few copper roses will be available for $15 each.
The construction of the roses will take place on Tuesday and Wednesday, Feb. 12 and 13, from noon to 3:30 p.m. There will be no sales during the construction days.
Money raised from the project benefits the Sheet Metal and Plastics Program.
