Connie Kanehailua in front of the State Capitol in Olympia at our DOC Lobby Day in 2015.
Check out this post. It was written by Farrah Edward, the daughter of one of our amazing members at the Airway Heights Corrections Center near Spokane. Farrah's mother, Dorcas (aka Connie) Kanehailua, embodies the kind of outstanding service that so many of our DOC members provide. Connie served our country in the Air Force and then the residents of our state in many roles at the DOC. On March 4, she received her 30-year service pin. Congrats, Connie, and thank you for your service.
