Puig will be heading off to Arizona State University to study biomedical engineering. A dancer, Puig likes Birkenstock footwear because of the high arches that give her the right kind of support.

    From left, Alice Baptista, Hawai‘i Health Systems Corporation Kaua‘i Region CEO Lance Segawa, Cliff Crouch, Alessandra Hess, holding Basu Koa Ridge-Hess, Jill Faye Papworth and Steve Kline of the Kaua‘i Veterans Memorial Hospital Foundation, celebrate the new bilirubin analyzer machine made possible by a $3,000 donation from Crouch, Hess and Basu Koa Ridge-Hess Monday at KVMH in Waimea. A bilirubin analyzer is a device used to measure bilirubin levels and is often used in neonatal-intensive-care units to screen new-borns for jaundice. The analyzers either detect bilirubin levels in blood or serum samples or record skin reflectance measurements, which virtually eliminate the costs, trauma and time associated with blood draws.

Congratulations to all of the 12th graders on reaching a major crossroad on your educational highway!
