“For three decades, Leeward CC has offered a day of promoting education, imagination, and fun for the families in our community,” said Leeward CC Chancellor Carlos Peñaloza. “While the coronavirus prevents us from our usual gathering on campus, our faculty and staff have put together an impressive set of activities that will foster the knowledge and creativity of our keiki. Now, more than ever, Leeward is committed to our traditions and our community. We hope that many will join us in our first ever online Discovery Fair.”
