Mikayla Shankles is a first-year student attending KCC with the intention of either majoring in computer or software engineering. Mikayla initially wanted to major in civil engineer, but after her uncle – who is a civil engineer himself – said that it wouldn’t suit her, she chose between computer and software due to her passion for building her own computers and creating applications. During her free time, Mikayla enjoys taking long walks on the beach to relieve stress. Mikayla is also a Lunalilo Scholar from the Lunalilo Scholarship Program.

    Serena Murray, a Mililani native and current resident, is working toward her RN license in the LPN-ADN Transition Program here at KCC. She has worked as a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) for the past six years, and hopes that by transitioning to an RN role she will give herself more options in the healthcare profession and ideally earn a higher salary. Serena keeps busy with her family; her daughter is in the drumline at Mililani High School and she has two younger boys. Serena's husband is in the military and they previously spent time in Oklahoma. Having since returned to O'ahu, Serena is excited to continue her education path at KCC. When not busy with classes or her current work as an LPN, you'll likely find Serena at the beach or hiking trails across the island.
