UH System College & Career Summit

Last month, Asst. Training Coordinator, Brother Kirk Kageno coordinated the participation at a career summit held at the Hawaii Community College Palamanui campus in Kona. Brother Matt Brady, agent for Big Island also assisted at Training's display and hands-on table. He said, "It was good to see so many students show interest in our trade. With this exposure, hopefully, they'll keep the Union in mind once they graduate from high school."

Approximately 450 middle and high school students from various schools attended this event. The main concourse was set up with college career tables, and backside with the UH agricultural department, carpentry, electronics, welding, and automotive trades. "About 40 students took interest in our program and participated in the pvc piping project," said Brother Kirk. He mentioned Training will be there once the career fairs start up again.
