aloha hou aku,
More accomplishments to celebrate!
Noelani Arista has been awarded a Mellon Dissertation Fellowship (and please forgive me if I don't have the exact name of this award). This means that she can take leave from her assistant professor teaching duties, return to Boston for the coming academic year, reunite with her family and finish her dissertation.
Sydney Iaukea was awarded a Mellon Post-Doctoral Fellowship.
Kamaoli Kuwada has finished his MA thesis in English.
Kanoe Nāone finished her dissertation in Political Science this semester. Congratulations Dr. Nāone!
He hoʻomaikaʻi iā ʻoukou!
