KCC 45th Annual Commencement, May 14, 2010

The Kauai Community College 45th Annual Commencement exercises will take place Friday, May 14, 2010 at 6:15 pm in the Performing Arts Center. 214 students from Summer 2009, Fall 2009 and Spring 2010 will be receiving degrees and certificates. This year's Commencement motto is "Sustainability is good: self reliance is better", showing a strong alignment of the students, faculty and staff of KCC, and of our Keynote speaker this year, to self-reliance and a commitment to the future.

Our keynote speaker is Ben Sullivan. He grew up on a river in the woods of Massachusetts and first came to Kauai when he was nineteen. He completed a degree in Environmental Design from the University of Colorado Boulder in 1995. He is a husband, father, gardener, architect, writer, activist, and dedicated member of the Kauai Community. The focus of Ben's work, whether it be in energy, food, politics, or building, is in helping to seek a transition from global to local for our island community.
