From 2015 to 2019, Leeward Community College was recognized in the Honolulu Star-Advertiser’s Hawaii’s People's Choice “Best of” Awards as Hawaii’s Best in Career and Technical Education. In 2020, we were recognized as a finalist.

Being selected as Hawaii’s Best is a reflection of the dedication and hard work of everyone at the College. The faculty, staff and administrators are honored that the College has earned these awards. Dean of Leeward’s Career & Technical Education, Ron Umehira, stated, “Our appreciation goes out to all those that voted for Leeward CC and recognized the quality of our programs.”

We hope to regain our top spot in 2021!
