Leeward CC was recognized at the Hawai‘i Job Corps Center’s Employer and Community Partner Appreciation Celebration on January 19, 2011. James Goodman, Jake Darakjian, and Jean Hara represented Leeward as an HJCC partner for the Memorandum of Agreement between the Automotive Technology Program and Hawai‘i Job Corps Center. Mid-Week took a photo of the “signing” of the Agreement with the HJCC director and each of the Leeward reps simulating the signing (even though not one of them were on the real document’s signature lines1).
Hawai‘i Job Corps Center expressed their gratitude for the agreement. HJCC pays for capable students who are motivated to go on for further education. Students are interviewed and screened and tuition and fees may be paid for up to two years of training (including their time at HJCC). If students are not progressing well in our programs, a call to HJCC will have their counselors and teachers counseling the students.
A framed certificate will be displayed in Dean Ron Umehira’s office.
