To be eligible, nominees may be past or present living employees, past or present students, or any current program or service that contributed to your campus or the UHCC system; whose actions and contributions reflect a great contribution to the success of the UH Community Colleges over the last 50 years.
“The success of the University of Hawai’i Community Colleges over the last 50 years,” said UHCC Vice President John Morton, “is due in large measure to the dedication and commitment of the many college leaders, faculty, staff and students who believed in the transformational power of education.”
