Win a $10,000 Scholarship

Student NEA Members from the University of Hawaii West Oahu hosted more than 200 keiki and their parents to celebrate Read Across America Day at the Kapolei Public Library on March 7.


The fun-filled celebration included arts and crafts, games, and raffles.  National Read Across America Chair, Fran Bellinger, participated in the event.  The entire group took the Readers Oath.

Mahalo, to our student members for inspiring youngsters to become lifelong readers.
