Helping Students
Climb To Success
Hawai‘i workforce development nonprofit ClimbHI collaborated with Mana Up, an initiative dedicated to helping the state’s business leaders expand globally, to host an entrepreneurship workshop for six Kohala High School students. Students visited House of Mana Up at Mauna Kea Beach Hotel and met with co-founder Meli James (far right). There, they were able to showcase their photography, apparel and household products. James then offered students feedback about product development and marketing. PHOTO COURTESY CLIMBHI

         She kindly sent me a bag after which I hid it from my family so that I could have it all to myself while watching late night TV. I stuck it in my work backpack, where I knew no one would look. Later that evening, I heard my wife and daughter yelling. Our dogs, Buddy and Wilson, had ripped into my backpack and took the beef jerky. The crumbs and flakes were strewn everywhere and they consumed the entire bag. I nearly broke down in tears. Later my wife saw me rummaging through the food pantry and asked, “What are you looking for?”
           I mumbled, “Where the hell are the dog jerky treats?”
