Celebrating student success is at the cornerstone of who we are as a community college ‘ohana. On Wednesday, October 21, 2015 Honolulu Community College honored our 2014-2016 student scholarship recipients at a special reception. That night we also thanked the many donors who give so generously to the college through charitable gifts.

Michael Sugihara, Construction Management major.

Construction Management student, Michael Sugihara shared his story with attendees.  With the guidance of Assistant Professor, Norman Takeya, Michael landed a job working as an Associate Project Engineer for Concrete Coring Company working on quarter million dollar jobs.  He is a recipient of the 2015 Construction Management Association of America Hawai’i Chapter Scholarship.

Matthew has a very typical story of our many non-traditional students. He has a bachelor’s degree from the University of Oregon in business administration. After working overseas teaching the English language in Asia he had a hard time finding a job that paid well and was meaningful back home. One day he ended up reading an online article about booming job fields – construction management was one of them. He did some research and found his way to Honolulu CC.

Donors Sunny and Ritchie Mudd.

Attendees also heard from donor couple, Sunny and Ritchie Mudd. The Mudd’s are long time supporters of the college having established a named scholarship to benefit the Music Entertainment and Learning Experience (MELE) program. They have also given to the Construction Management program and the Student Opportunities fund.

The college is grateful to our many donors, and we are proud of our scholarship recipients for achieving their academic goals.
