Ka'imi Won ’21: College of Arts & Sciences Dean of Students Award
Ka'imi Won ’21 received the Pacific University College of Arts & Sciences Dean of Students Award.
She was honored for her “grace and perseverance through difficult leadership situations.”
“As a leader in Nā Haumāna O Hawai'i, Ka‘imi was instrumental in both the plans for the cancelled 2020 Lūʻau & Hōʻike and 2021 Ho‘omau event,” her nominators said. “Through her advocacy and planning, Kaʻimi has built a strong foundation to share the culture of Hawaiʻi for future NHOH students to carry on.”
Won, who is from He’eia, Oahu, Hawai’i, graduated in May 2021 with a major in exercise science with an integrative physiology emphasis. This year she has worked as a physical therapy aide in Forest Grove, Ore.
Won’s efforts “to help students feel seen, included, and involved were especially impactful during this difficult year,” her award notes.
