To some, the term “community” may be as simple as “people.” To Webster’s Dictionary, it means “a social group of any size whose members reside in a specific locality often having a common culture.”

For Laurie Lawrence, Coordinator of the Leeward Community College-Wai‘anae campus, a community is “a group of people with the same basic vision who work together for that vision to become reality.”

From the famous Chicken Bacon Ranch to the Classic B.M.T to the new Pulled Pork BBQ and bacon & egg flatbread, the new Subway eatery has increased the food options on campus.

Located in the Uluwehi Cafe, the new Subway gives the campus more food choices and closes later than the cafeteria. Fall hours are 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. daily and Subway accepts debit and credit cards. The rest of the cafe, which carries plate lunches, drinks and burgers, closes at 2:30 p.m. Mondays through Thursdays and 1:30 p.m. on Fridays.

Bobbie Martel, an instructor and coordinator of the Associates of Arts in Teaching program, was one of 15 recipients of the University of Hawaii Regents’ Medal for Excellence in Teaching.

This does not come as a surprise to any of her fellow professors or students at Leeward Community College. She engages and encourages every student in her classroom and in doing so, brings out the best in all of him or her. Even her colleagues are spurred on to greater heights.
