Where Are They Now?

This month we feature a former NHERC student who now works in the tourism industry. Jonathan Ah Yet, Jr. is a 2011 graduate of Honoka‘a High School. While in high school, Jonathan enrolled in French 101 and Business 100 as a Running Start student at NHERC. In spring 2014, Jonathan graduated from Leeward Community College with his associate’s degree in Liberal Arts. He would like to pursue his bachelor’s degree in Business Administration next.Jonathan Ah Yet Jr.

For the past three years, Jonathan has been working for Alaska Airlines and is currently a customer service supervisor for the company at the Honolulu Airport. His long-term goals include one day becoming a pilot and living in Washington. Of all of the places he has traveled so far, New Zealand is his favorite place and Dubai is one place he’d like to visit soon.

Jonathan shares, “Taking classes at NHERC prepared me to go into a diverse world where things move at a much quicker pace than how it is back home. It taught me how to build a great work ethic for myself in order to be successful in the position I am in today. Advice I’d like to give other students is to be diligent and humble when it comes to your goals in life. It pays off in the end.”

We congratulate Jonathan on his accomplishments so far and wish him continued success with his education, employment and travels!
