Hawaiʻi Community College Alumni and Friends will be celebrating 50 Years of Model Homes with a reunion on April 28, 5:30–9 p.m. at the University of Hawaiʻi Hilo Campus Center Dining Room. The reunion is a chance for alumni and friends to reconnect with classmates, instructors and others in the construction industry.
The Model Home Project was established in 1965, and the first home was completed in 1966. Nearly every year since, students in construction trade programs have designed and built a custom home for a local family. Since the program’s inception, the Model Home Project has provided more than 4,000 Hawaiʻi CC students with valuable hands-on experience.
