The MentorLinks grant is for the period of October 1, 2014 through October 31, 2016, in the amount of $20,000.

“I am very pleased and honored that the AACC review panel selected Kapiʻolani CC to work on this important program that is designed to benefit AACC members,” said Chancellor Leon Richards. “In today’s rapidly changing technology field, it is critical that we support technician education and mentorships.”

Team building, effective partnerships and good communication are among the key factors that will make this program successful.

    I sincerely congratulate you all at Kapiʻolani Community College. What you are coming together and achieving is what I would call “Ka haku Noʻeau.” This is a lei interwoven of the diverse skills attained through the knowledge gained through using all of the senses and perfecting them. I only pray that someday I may be able to experience the same here on Kauaʻi. Iesū pū, aloha.
