Shidler donated $25 million to the college in 2006. Since then he has contributed $526,000 toward the renovation of classrooms, security cameras and other improvements, and recently donated another $1,015,116 to finish the renovations and for new projects.
Kaiser Permanente Hawaii
has recognized 25 Radford
and Waipahu High School
students for helping to create a healing atmosphere at its Mapunapuna Pediatric Clinic.
The students spent more than 550 hours and used 70 gallons of paint to create 10 murals for young patients and their families. The murals, ranging from 4 to 25 feet long, have an "under the sea" theme.
Dr. Mike Hamilton, clinic chief of the pediatric clinic, and Janet Camacho, pediatric clinic supervisor, gave each student team a plaque in appreciation for their time and dedication to make the atmosphere friendlier for pediatric patients.
Students volunteered nights and weekends, and some caught the city bus for a two-hour commute each way from their homes to the clinic, Kaiser Permanente said.
