Governor Ige’s visit to ‘Ulu’ulu

On March 29, 2016, Governor David Ige visited the University of Hawaii West O’ahu campus, alongside First Lady Dawn Amano-Ige.  They toured ‘Ulu’ulu, as well as the Creative Media labs and classrooms. Governor Ige mentioned, “The ability of the Academy for Creative Media to be on virtually every campus across the system, I think is very important, as we’ve been working to develop digital media skills on in our public school students.  It’s terrific that they now have a place to go regardless of where they are.”

Here’s a photo of one of the Creative Media classes and creative media students. The Governor and First Lady visited with Associate Director of Creative Media Sharla Hanaoka, Professor Gary Shimokawa, and ‘Ulu’ulu Cultural Collections Specialist Heather Giugni.

Governor Ige says, “I have been a big proponent of the Academy for Creative Media and most importantly, it being a System wide program.  It’s been tremendous progress to see what has unfolded here.”
