The facility is the first National Test Center outside the continental United States and will allow all of Hawai‘i’s active duty personnel and dependents to take their CLEP examinations and receive results in one place.

The festivities began with a ceremonial lei separation performed by 15th Airlift Wing Commander Colonel William J. Changose and HPU Associate Vice President of Academic Administration Dr. Les Correa. Assistant Dean for Student Affairs Ralph Gallogly performed the formal activation of the center’s multimedia equipment to bring it into operation. Gallogly’s role in the project was much more than ceremonial as noted in the opening remarks by Dean of Military Campus Programs Robert Cyboron.

“ This project couldn’t have been accomplished without the hard work of Ralph Gallogly,” Cyboron said. “He worked on this project in addition to his regular duties and we’re very thankful. The biggest challenge was getting agreements between the different branches of service for use of the facility, and Ralph put it all together. This is a great tool to help our military campus students accelerate their educational goals.”

Col. Changose echoed the thanks to HPU for its efforts to help military students get an education.
“ I appreciate HPU’s steadfastness and hard work to make this center a reality,” Changose said. “This is the first center outside the continental U.S, and I’m glad we are moving forward to give our service men and women and their families greater access in furthering their education.”

Hickam Education Services Officers Agnes Borbely and Kathy Craven were also acknowledged for their efforts in making the new center a reality.
