(Tamuning, Guam) The Guam Visitors Bureau (GVB) has announced that Atkins Kroll Inc. has taken the Håfa Adai Pledge (HAP) Friday afternoon at the AK Showroom in Tamuning.
“As Guam’s oldest corporation, we are deeply committed to the preservation of the island’s language, culture, and traditions. Taking this pledge solidifies our promise to keep our heritage alive throughout our organization, said AK President Wendi Herring. “As our island heads towards economic recovery, we want our community to know that we will be here every step of the way just as we have been for the last 107 years. AK is here for Guam and here for life,” added Herring.
“We are happy to welcome AK into the Håfa Adai Pledge familia,” said GVB Director of Tourism Research Nico Fujikawa. “They are an integral part of helping our island residents and visitors get to where they need to go.
