HONOLULU - Leeward Community College students will soon benefit from more scholarships thanks to a $100,000 gift from Kalaeloa Partners, LP. The Kalaeloa Partners Scholarship, established in 2012 with a $100,000 gift from Kalaeloa Partners LP assists part-time and full-time students who have graduated from either Kapolei High School; Campbell High School; Nanakuli High School; Waipahu High School or Wai‘anae High School. Since 2012, 80 student awards have been disbursed.
Kaua‘i Community College (KCC) Nursing Program students will have a new 3G simulation manikin this year due to donations from HMSA ($45,000) and Wilcox Medical Center ($30,000). Two other foundations and the KCC Nursing Department also contributed funds. The program’s previous manikin was at the end of its 10 year life and its manufacturer would no longer service it.
