Ten students from Chaminade University’s Catholic Educational Leadership Cohort graduated with their Master of Education Degree on Monday, December 12, 2016.

“These dedicated educational leaders need to be commended.  To complete a master’s program from an excellent institution like Chaminade University is, alone, a great accomplishment. To do so while working full time and partaking in family responsibilities is truly inspirational,” said Superintendent of Hawaii Catholic Schools Michael Rockers.

“I am so glad that our Catholic schools will benefit from their expertise and educational background in the future,” Rockers added.

During the 30-month program, each member of the cohort completed rigorous academic work and research while receiving mentorship in the Catholic school of employment and consistent educational training in preparation to assume administrative responsibilities in Hawaii Catholic Schools.

Part of their cost of tuition was paid by a grant from the Hawaii Catholic Community Foundation.

One member of the cohort, Laverne Suster, was also named Chaminade’s “Outstanding Graduate” in the Master’s of Education Program.
