Mahalo to Janice Bond for 10 Years of Service
On behalf of HEA’s members, the Board of Directors and staff, we extend our sincerest mahalo to Janice Bond who will be concluding her term on the board on June 30, 2021. Mrs. Bond has generously served 10 years on our board, and was a member of the Finance, Scholarship and TAAC Committees. We are grateful for her efforts on Kauai to recruit new members, find TAAC advisors and encourage so many students to become teachers. For the past several years, Mrs. Bond has represented HEA at our booth at the Kauai Chapter HSTA Teacher Institute Day. We wish Mrs. Bond the very best in her future endeavors. She will continue to serve as a member of HEA’s Scholarship Committee.
