Kristian Pollack

Kristian Pollack is a 19-year-old Kaiser High School alumnus in his second semester at Kapi’olani Community College. He’s currently majoring in accounting and plans to transfer to the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa upon completion of his associate’s degree. He was born in Arizona but moved to Hawai‘i at the age of 2 and has resided in Honolulu since then. 

Pollack spends some of his free time enjoying classic strategy games like solitaire and Mancala, and he’s always prepared for a spontaneous showdown.

“I have an entire bag full of games in case my friends randomly show up,” he said. The wildly popular Cards against Humanity is his favorite choice as of right now.

Pollack has spent a considerable amount of time honing his skills.

    Serena Murray, a Mililani native and current resident, is working toward her RN license in the LPN-ADN Transition Program here at KCC. She has worked as a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) for the past six years, and hopes that by transitioning to an RN role she will give herself more options in the healthcare profession and ideally earn a higher salary. Serena keeps busy with her family; her daughter is in the drumline at Mililani High School and she has two younger boys. Serena's husband is in the military and they previously spent time in Oklahoma. Having since returned to O'ahu, Serena is excited to continue her education path at KCC. When not busy with classes or her current work as an LPN, you'll likely find Serena at the beach or hiking trails across the island.
