Congratulations to Kureha Pambid!
Imagine receiving a college degree a month before graduating from high school. That is a milestone Wai`anae resident Kureha Pambid accomplished. Kureha enrolled at Leeward Community College Wai`anae Moku through a program called Running Start that allows high school students to attend college courses numbered 100 and above, while completing high school. Kureha decided to join the Running Start program as the idea of taking free courses and earning college credit was a great opportunity for her. She encourages high school students to take advantage of Running Start as college courses can broaden their academic experience and unlock personal interests. Through her college experience, Kureha found a potential career path in digital media production. This fall she will continue her college journey at the University of Hawaii West Oahu to pursue a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Creative Media.
Kureha received an Associate Degree in Liberal Arts this Spring. She is the first student from Wai`anae High School to receive a college degree prior to graduation. She would like to thank her parents, college professors, and high school instructors for their guidance and support.
