UH president talks about future of KCC

PUHI, Hawaii (AP) - University of Hawaii President M.R.C. Greenwood attended a community forum at Kauai Community College in which the future of the college was addressed.

Many in Hawaii are worrying about the impact of Sen. Dan Inouye's death in December on federal funding sources.

However, Greenwood expressed her confidence Monday in maintaining that particular financial stream, as well as other sources of university funding.

The Garden Island reports that she praised Kauai Community College staff and students, while pointing out that the college with 1,512 students has the largest enrollment in its history.

Greenwood said a project where students can get their expenses paid for a second year if they do well the first year has proved to be a "great investment."
