2023 Leilehua High School Career Night (October)

Jon and Lynn Young represented HAPI at the Leilehua High School College & Career Night event on October 17th from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m.  The event was opened to the Wahiawa Community. The event attracted Leilehua high school students, some with their parents, which was nice to see.

About 100 companies and organizations were on-hand to help students plan their futures. Represented at the event included colleges, universities, trades, military, and retail stores (see photos below). The floor plan of the gym with the table layout is shown at the very end of this article.

At our table, students could help themselves to a HAPI sticker, a HAPI pencil, a 3 Reasons Why the Asphalt Industry is an Awesome Career Choice Brochure, and/or a Careers in the Asphalt Industry flyer.

HAPI’s Paving Train Activity

Students could participate in our Paving Train Activity for a chance to win a $10 gift card from Starbucks. Students were given a photo of a piece of construction equipment and had to correctly match it with one of the descriptions shown in the photo above. If they matched it correctly, they were eligible to enter a drawing to win a $10 gift card.

Students could also participate in the Civil Engineering Career quiz game. Students could select a question about opportunities at the University of Hawaii, starting salary at the City and County of Honolulu, and the various fields in Civil Engineer. If they answered it correctly, they were eligible to enter a drawing to win a $10 gift card.

Rocio Alano, College & Career Coordinator, Leilehua High School, and her team put on an excellent event. We hope to participate in future events at Leilehua High School.
