Job Corps Honors Winston Kong

Students and staff at Hawaii Job Corps recently honored longtime friend of the program Winston Kong as he begins his retirement. Winston joined the Job Corps team as a career counselor in 1975 at the former Koko Head campus, where he guided the young adults in the career training program until 1984. Winston returned to Job Corps seven years ago as a Windward Community College instructor to teach an interdisciplinary studies course required for all new students to WCC.
