Annual mahalo breakfast brings together scholarship donors and recipients to celebrate the impact of giving

Hawai'i Community College and the University of Hawai'i Foundation welcomed foundation donors and student scholarship recipients to the third annual Donor Mahalo and Student Scholarship Recognition Breakfast on November 3.  The event was held at the Hawai'i CC Manono Campus cafeteria with nearly 100 in attendance. This year more than $420,000 in private student aid was provided by generous donors, and many donors were on hand to meet student recipients.

The video below was presented at the event and highlights the impact of giving and the value of "paying it forward." The video features donor and retired Hawai'i CC Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs Barbara Arthurs and two Hawai'i CC alumni, Cheryl Dias and Matthew Ruiz, Jr.
