**Shining Stars: Celebrating the Legislator of the Year Award and our HFIA Hall of Fame Inductee**
HFIA's Legislator of Year Award Recipient Scott Nishimoto. This legislative session was particularly rewarding for HFIA, thanks largely to dedicated public servants like Representative Scott Nishimoto. His unwavering support helped us secure $1.5 million in recurring funds for the DA BUX program in the State Budget, which will be matched 1:1 by the federal government. 
HFIA Hall of Fame Inductee, Webco Hawaii Founder Greg Gomes, an industry leader who created a legacy of giving.
