A Kihei Charter School student will “double graduate” this month as she finishes high school and accepts her degree from the University of Hawaii Maui College.

Amanda Tuttle will receive an Associate in Science degree in electronics and computer engineering technology, according to a news release from UH-MC. For the past two years, Tuttle has been taking a minimum of 14 college credits while also completing her high school classes and projects.

“My parents steered me towards STEM when I was in middle school,” Tuttle said. “Since then, I’ve been very interested, specifically, in robotics and engineering.”

Tuttle joined an all-female VEX Robotics team and built small robots for competitions with teams from across the country over the course of two years.

“During that time, I focused on both the hardware and software sides of robotics,” Tuttle explained. “And I found a genuine passion in the sport, itself.”

Elisabeth Dubuit, UH-MC electronics and computer engineering technology program coordinator, said Tuttle has been an exemplary student.

“I never heard her complain about the amount of work or ask for extra time to turn in her assignments, or even come late to class,” Dubuit said.

After her “double graduation,” Tuttle plans to pursue a four-year engineering degree.
