Staff Council Recognizes the Accounts Receivable Department

The Staff Council Special Events and Recognition Committee, which sponsors the Ke Kaukahi awards, acknowledges offices whose work has had a significant impact on the University from their outstanding performance and commitment to excellence while embodying the HPU ‘ohana’s values of pono, kuleana, and aloha.

The Accounts Receivable (AR) team of Lisa Cook and Carey Foote was named the Fall 2019 Ke Kaukahi department awardee. The Accounts Receivable department is a “huge source of support” for the new Student Services Center. Assistant Controller Stacie Nakamura, who is not technically part of the AR team, deserves recognition, too, for her support of AR and the Student Services Center.

An award nominator said, “[The AR team] is incredibly responsive…and always provides a comprehensive answer specific to the student or staff member’s needs. Best of all, they always respond with such a genuinely caring attitude.”
