AS HE PURSUES A PHD IN HISTORY, NOAH DOLIM SEES HAWAI‘I CC AS A KEY PART OF HIS PAST

After graduating from high school on O’ahu in 2010, Noah Patterson Hanohano Dolim needed direction. He was an underachieving student in high school, Dolim says, and he didn’t know what to do next. That’s when he decided to move to Hilo and enroll at Hawai‘i Community College. With family on Hawai‘i Island, it seemed like a smart move, and it turns out he was right.

At Hawai‘i CC he found what he was looking for: a sense of community and passionate professors who sparked an interest in Hawaiian history, a subject that is now the focus of his doctoral studies.
