In response to the uncertainty regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, the Hall of Fame ceremonies originally scheduled for June 27, 2020 have been postponed for one year and have been rescheduled to June 26, 2021. The decision is based on both precautionary recommendations by the Centers for Disease Control as well as the need to address concerns expressed by numerous individuals needing to make both travel and hotel accomadations in advance.

"The Zone"

Our student athletes refer to our new computer lab, as “The Zone”, or the endzone that gets them where they want to go!




The new state of the art, satellite computer lab that was recently completed, within the new Community

Service Building, next to the Monarch Athletic Center. The "Zone" is funded and supported by the Equity Grant on campus.

This facility is available to all student athletes from 9am to 2pm daily! English and Math tutors are provided every Tuesday and Wednesday.  The computer center is the home of our athletic counselor, Reggie Reed (pictured on the right). Reggie is available to meet with all student athletes regarding their counseling needs. Full supervision is provided by John Fonua (pictured on the left).  As the supervising monitor, John collaborates with head coaches of all sports to ensure their teams study hall goals are met.

We are fortunate for the Equity Grant funding and proud of what we have to offer our student athletes to stay committed to their academic goals.
