SCHOFIELD BARRACKS, Hawaii -- The U.S. Army Garrison-Hawaii Fellows Program graduated its first class, here, recently.

Overseen by USAG-HI's Workforce Development Division, the 12-month Fellows Program grows civilian leaders, supervisors and staff. The program supports Installation Management Command's Line of Effort, or LOE, 3 for Leader and Workforce Development.

Through the year, Fellows visited nine USAG-HI directorates and activities to learn more about the garrison's mission of supporting Soldiers and their families. They also attended luncheons with USAG-HI senior leaders.

Also, Fellows attended several garrison meetings throughout the year to link their visits with organizational challenges.

Graduation day began with a practice run of their project presentations, followed by a luncheon with senior leaders.

During graduation, the Fellows presented their team projects. All projects were linked to one of IMCOM's LOEs and keys to success.

Project topics included energy conservation awareness, education center informational awareness, a Microsoft Office application competencies assessment, streamlining processes for family travel section and a community programs initiative.

It is the Fellows' hope that their projects will be implemented soon.
