Pono Kuliaeloaʻa Naʻauao Hōlualoa Kahili

Pono Kuliaeloaʻa Naʻauao Hōlualoa Kahili lives in Maunolaha with his wife and extended family. Kahili is 75 percent Hawaiian. His name was chosen by his father and is roughly translated to concepts of “enlightenment” and “wisdom.” Although he currently works in the engineering department of a hotel loading dock, the Liberal Arts major is uninterested in the field. Instead, he wants to pursue something in the area of mechanics after he is done at KCC. “I wanna be able to fix something," he said. "Look at it and fix it … I’m thinking about doing that.” In his free time, Kahili likes to work in his yard with his grandma. She does the planting and he helps by doing the heavy labor when they work together.

    Michael Sheehey serves as KCC’s retention coordinator. New to this position since the start of the Fall 2018 semester, Sheehey moved from Pāhoa to Honolulu to jump at this career opportunity. As a retention coordinator, Sheehey works with KCC faculty to oversee campus-wide initiatives to target student success. Sheehey said that working within the community college gives him this feeling of a “small town vibe.” “You have the convenience to know who you’re working with and have conversations with these people outside of the context of a specific problem or challenge you’re trying to address,” Sheehey said. “We have to collaborate and cooperate for the sake of our own success.”
