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.

- Anthony MurakamiAnthony Murakami was born and raised in Honolulu and is a returning student, attending KCC part-time this semester. In 2010, Murakami graduated from KCC with his degree in Exercise and Sport Science, but in 2013 he decided to come back and pursue his Liberal Arts degree. He originally had plans to go back to school and get his degree in Food Science and Human Nutrition at UH Mānoa. However, Murakami recently changed his mind about continuing in that program and decided to would be best to finish off his classes for Liberal Arts. Currently, he is three classes away from graduating and has not decided what path he wants to continue on when he finishes. During his free time, Murakami enjoys running and kick-boxing when he's not working or at school.
