Faculty, staff and students at the Blessing of Waianae Moku

Years in the Making

It's finally happening! Leeward's dedicated Wai'anae faculty & staff and amazing students now have a permanent home! Even though the college did not officially get control of the building until the first week of August, the faculty and staff worked tirelessly to get offices and classrooms ready and everyone moved in for the start of the fall semester.

Summer Miles and the rest of the Leeward CC Wai'anae Moku Gang shared some great images. Summer explained, "The photos were taken from our first week of operations, including pictures from our Student Employee training, Unit Meeting, Campus Blessing and the first 2 days of classes. The energy out here is amazing. Students are in awe of their new lounge, classes and study areas. Faculty and staff are stoked to be in this significantly improved learning space. And community members are streaming in to send us well wishes."

More details on the new facility and the formal Dedication Ceremony (planned for October 10) will be distributed soon. All the photos sent are posted on our Flickr album.
