and Grounds Maintenance
Maintenance Award Winner
One of two maintenance personnel employed by West Oahu, Nakayama helps carry out all the building and grounds chores usually assigned to many different people on other campuses. Nakayama is known for his willing, pleasant and cooperative demeanor and efficiency. When faculty or other staff members make requests, the tasks are nearly done within 24 hours.
Not only does Nakayama have janitorial, grounds and maintenance responsibilities, but he also contributes ideas and improvements to new projects.
“Mark has made our small two-person maintenance staff an important part of the education team,” noted a colleague.
