From Billie Lueder’s article on the University of Hawaiʻi News website:

For 12 years, the Hawaiʻi High School Summer Auto Academy at Honolulu Community College has been giving high school students interested in the automotive industry the unique opportunity to hit the road to college running.

Through a generous grant from First Hawaiian Bank, the six-week program consists of an integrative curriculum in which students participate in an unpaid internship at a Cutter Auto dealership in the mornings, then attend classes at Honolulu CC in the afternoon. This summer, eight students successfully completed the program and will receive four college credits toward an associate of applied science degree in automotive technology.

“This program not only exposes high school students to the automotive industry, but it gives them a unique opportunity to experience a college level learning environment,” said Honolulu CC Chancellor Erika Lacro. “We are teaching them transferable skills that will translate in any workplace.”
