BY MICHELE VAN HESSEN — Good News! Funds have been released to repair the Chapel at Kapiolani Community College on Diamond Head Road.
Representative Barbara Marumoto requested $575,000 in her 2010 Capitol Improvement Project bill to renovate and repair the Chapel.
The item was subsequently included in the state budget.
Today we hear from the KCC Administration that Governor Lingle has released the money.
Wood rot and termite damage had weakened the historic structure that once was a part of Fort Ruger.
KCC will continue to use the Chapel for classes and community use.
