West Oahu Roundup
Here’s a quick look at news and accomplishments of your neighbors.
Aiea’s Jaci Agustin recently was recognized for her pageant success – she was crowned Mrs. Aiea and then Mrs. Hawaii America – by the Honolulu City Council. Part of what propelled her to these titles has been her work to promote healthy diets. She volunteers with the Live Better Together Collaborative and the Kalihi Teen Nutrition Partnership. She also educates keiki on proper nutrition through her work as a YMCA program coordinator.
Kapolei resident Mel Harada recently was promoted to senior vice president and division manager of loan operations at Central Pacific Bank. With 30 years of banking experience, Harada came to CPB in 2011 as vice president and loan servicing manager and compliance and risk manager of loan operations. In his new position, he is responsible for consumer, resident, small business, commercial and shared national credits.
Dayna Matsumoto of Aiea also recently was promoted at Central Pacific Bank, moving up from vice president and asset liability manager to vice president and controller. In her new position, she is responsible for overseeing tax compliance and developing financial forecasts and corporate strategies.
Jessica M. Wong recently graduated from the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado, earning both a bachelor’s degree and a commission as a second lieutenant. Wong, who is the daughter of Terri Ann Wong and the granddaughter of Thelma Tanaka of Aiea, has served in the military for four years.
