Hawaii’s first intern in the Hawaiian Law Enforcement Legacy Program graduates!

April 25, 2014

Congratulations to Amanda Loewe-Llanes on her successful completion of the Park Ranger Academy at Skagit Valley College in Washington State!  Amanda is the first intern to complete the Hawaiian Law Enforcement Legacy Program. The goal of this program is to recruit and mentor Hawaiian students and then provide financial support to help them to pursue a career in visitor and resource protection with the National Park Service.

The program is a partnership between Hawaii Island National Parks, the Hawaii Pacific Parks Association (HPPA), the Skagit Valley College Parks Academy and the Skagit Foundation.  The goal of the program is to recruit and mentor Hawaiian students to help them to pursue a career in visitor and resource protection with the National Park Service.

In the summer of 2013, Amanda worked at both Kaloko-Honokohau NHP and Haleakala National Park, gaining valuable field experience in many facets of park operations, especially protecting resources and visitors.  Leaving the Hawaiian Islands for the first time to attend the academy in Washington State was a great adventure for Amanda who was born and raised in South Kona.  Amanda was awarded top honors for her performance in Control Tactics.

 

The Hawaiian Law Enforcement Legacy Program is currently recruiting for 2014/2015.  Interested students from Hawaii should contact Chief Ranger Janette Chiron () for an application and more information about the program.  Image
