The Pearl City Community Association (PCCA) recognized Ed Nishimura on Tuesday for his nine years of community volunteer service work with Pearl City High School's Special Education PACE Program.

PCCA President Warren Hiromoto along with Honolulu City Council member Breene Harimoto, presented Nishimura with a certificate of appreciation during the PCCA Board of Directors monthly meeting held at the Pearl City Shopping Center conference room.

"Ed has been helping the PCHS Special Education PACE Program by volunteering his time 3 days a week for the past 9 years during school days," said Horimoto. " Ed is truly one of the many behind the scene humanitarians helping our Pearl City community."

Nishimura worked together in the planning process with former Pearl City High School Special Education teacher Bert Lum and the school's administration on a special "Sun Project"  that created the framework for an educational farm that included sustainability and a work place readiness area for all students. The Sun Project was proposed and presented to the PCHS staff and community leaders in November of 2011. 

Special guest, State Representative Gregg Takayama was also in attendance Tuesday night to congratulate Mr. Nishimura on his accomplishments and service to our Pearl City community.

The PCCA Board of Directors would like to say mahalo to Mr. Nishimura for his volunteer efforts through the years that helped play an integral role in the success of the Pearl City High School Special Education PACE Program.
