We take internet for granted.  But what is the infrastructure that connects our isolated islands to the world?  What are the plans to expand broadband to the underserved rural areas of our island?  Hawaiian Telcom is a key player to our future stake in technology.

A recent Hawaii Tribune Herald article wrote the following about our speaker:

"Last week, 11-year-old Justin Takemoto received an envelope in the mail sealed with wax.

He tore it open to find an acceptance letter to the Gwenyn Gwych School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, the Hawaii wizarding school within the Harry Potter world.

Justin, an avid Harry Potter fan, was thrilled.

“I was literally jumping all over the house,” Justin recalled Wednesday. “I was pretty excited.”

Justin was one of 75 East Hawaii students to receive the Gwenyn Gwych acceptance letters, sent to get students enthused for the Harry Potter theme of this year’s fall break STEAM camp at E.B. de Silva Elementary School.

The camp is produced by the Hawaii Science and Technology Museum, a Hilo nonprofit that formed in 2015. The museum runs mobile library and school exhibits, along with several other camps during the year, aimed at fostering student interest in science, technology, engineering and math, or STEM.
