I in turn want you to know how greatly I appreciate your

commitment to providing higher education for our community.  My undergraduate degree
armed me with analytical tools and written skills that have opened many doors
throughout my life, including the opportunity to become a physician and
National Health Corps member, and ultimately a State Senator and healthcare
leader. Thank you for making similar opportunities available to the hard
working students in Hawaii. You do more good than you know.

Those who avail themselves of your expertise and wisdom will
thrive and be able to both better support their families and better contribute
to society as they pursue their dreams.  There is nothing more important than a
quality education.  I respect what you do.
