As a University of Hawaii alumni, it was an honor to accompany my boss David McNeil and his partner David Wilson, founders of McNeil Wilson Communications, to a special ceremony at UH to thank them for their generous donation of $35,000 to the University of Hawaii Foundation. The gift will be used to establish an endowed scholarship fund on behalf of the School of Communications benefiting students majoring in communications with an emphasis on public relations.

My fellow colleague Amy Hennessey (like I a UH alum, fellow Big Islander, and graduate of the School of Communications…formerly the School of Journalism) was there as well. It was a proud moment for the both of us as University of Hawaii at Manoa Chancellor Virginia Hinshaw and College of Social Sciences Dean Richard Dubanoski praised McNeil and Wilson for their philanthropy.

It’s these kinds of good acts that make me proud to work at McNeil Wilson. And I’m sure a few others around the office too, since more than half our staff in the public relations division alone are graduates of UH.
