The Pacific Islander Student Center (PISC) at UH Hilo is embarking on a project to create a Wall of Inspiration of the names and information of UH Hilo alumni from throughout the Pacific Islands. Coordinated by a new Inspiration Team led by Summer Saunders from Palau and Jacob Kom from Chuuk, the goal is to transform the walls of the Center into a living testimony to those who have navigated successfully as Vulcans and have become contributing members of our respective Pacific Island nations and entities including the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI),  Federated States of Micronesia (FSM), Guam, Republic of the Marshall Islands (RMI), Republic of Palau (ROP), Samoa, Tonga, etc. Our hope is to inspire current and future Vulcans of Pacific Island ethnicities to follow in the paths of success guided by the many who have graced the ground of UH Hilo.

Pacific Students Media presents…

On March 28, 2015, the Honolulu Museum of Art School hosted a day-long gathering of the Micronesian community to celebrate the exhibition called “Carrying Culture: Navigating Anew”, the museum’s way to honor and celebrate the Micronesian diaspora and their art and culture. Over 60 Micronesian students from the Pacific Islander Student Center at the University of Hawaii at Hilo & Hawaii Community College traveled to Oahu to join the community’s celebration.

This is the highlight of the celebration as seen through the lenses of the Pacific Students Media team.
