Continuing the Honolulu Community College Carpentry Tech Program’s tradition of excellence, 2016 saw great successes amongst its graduating class and faculty.
Historically known as a small, tight-knit group, the Carpentry Tech Program graduated twelve students in Spring 2016 with one giving the valedictory speech at commencement ceremonies. Eight graduates will be entering the Carpenters Union and all have secured employment opportunities in their chosen fields.
At the May 13, 2016 graduation ceremonies, we also saw the awarding of the 2016 Regent’s Teaching in Excellence Award to our very own, Assistant Professor Dean Crowell. Mr. Crowell teaches the Rough Framing and Finish Carpentry courses to the upperclass Carpentry students.
Our Carpentry Basics and Concrete Formwork faculty instructor, George Boeman, received tenure and promotion to Assistant Professor on June 7, 2016.
Congratulations to both the students and faculty of the Honolulu Community College Carpentry Program and excellent job in carrying on the tradition!
