Congratulations to our fall 2018 graduates! The winter commencement ceremony on Monday, December 10, 2018, recognized the hard work of our undergraduate and graduate students who had completed all criteria necessary to receive their degree.
The ceremony began with an oli by Kaipo Leopoldino ‘14 followed by the processional. Nonglak Jaiyen Kapileo, the undergraduate student speaker, and Avemaoe Peko, the graduate speaker, both congratulated their fellow classmates on their hard work and accomplishments and commended them on this new beginning.
“Receiving our diploma tonight means we have completed our painting,” said Kapileo. “It’s time to start a new canvas and continue to paint our future.”
The commencement address by Pono Shim, president and CEO of O’ahu Economic Development Board, inspired the students to continue working for their goals and to stand up for their beliefs.
