Yuree Kū has been at KCC since 2011 and currently works at the Office of Student Affairs (OSA). Originally, Kū had obtained an associate’s degree in Liberal Arts at KCC before enrolling into the Nurse Aide program. Since then Kū has decided that she no longer wants to be a nurse and instead wants to learn more about engineering–mechanical engineering in particular is what interests her the most. In the meantime, Kū is a part of ‘Ike, the Hawai’i Calculus Academy’s six-week math concentrated summer program. The program takes place at KCC and Kū is a part of it to cultivate her interest in the pre-engineering field.

- Jeff KimJeff Kim is an Economics major from Chicago who moved to O‘ahu two years ago. "Economics doesn't get me excited to get out of bed in the morning. But when it comes to climate change, it's as useful as it can be in addressing the climate crisis. ... It can create policy-level solutions like the cap and trade ... and carbon taxes. ... These economically based solutions are going to be the most effective. I want to do what I can to address the climate crisis." Jeff manages the Honolulu chapter of Citizens' Climate Lobby (notice his hat) and is also on the executive committee for the Sierra Club on Oahu.
