Kiewit Building Group Interns Enhance Pearl City Elementary  With An Outdoor Amphitheater

Kiewit Building Group, Inc. summer interns led volunteers, friends and families building and installing a stage and stadium benches at Pearl City Elementary this month.  The group spent over 700 hours on the project, enabling Pearl City Elementary students to attend outdoor classes in the amphitheater.

“We are proud of our outstanding interns who lead projects such as this every year.  One of Kiewit’s core values is stewardship as we strive to create a better Hawaii for future generations,” said Sharon Ann Thom, senior vice president of Kiewit Building Group.  “Our program provides students, our future builders, with mentorship and hands on experience in the construction industry.  It is amazing what our young people are able to accomplish today.”

Honolulu Little League All Stars need your help

Honolulu Little League All Stars need your help

The Honolulu Little League All Stars 12u capture the 2014 Hawaii State Little League Championship recently against very good competition from all over the state. 

With their win, they secured a berth in the Little League Western Division Championships being played in San Bernardino, California.  If successful there, the team will compete in Williamsport, Pennsylvania for the Little League World Series.

It is an exciting time for the team and their families and the energy level and optimism is extremely positive.  The reality of the current moment, however, is that it is very expensive to take a team from Hawaii to the mainland to represent our state.  That is why we need your help!  We are actively soliciting donations to defray the players and coaches expenses while on this exciting journey.
