Some $22,000 in donated monies from the Harold K.L. Castle Foundation, Turtle Bay Resort, SunEdison, The Learning Coalition and others helped finance trips for Laie Elementary and Kahuku High and Intermediate students to compete in academic contests on the East Coast.
Alex Harris, Harold K.L. Castle Foundation, embraces Lea Albert, complex area superintendent of the Windward District's Castle-Kahuku Complex schools, after surprising her today with a permanent $25,000 endowment for a scholarship in her name. Each year, one student from Castle or Kahuku High, who exemplifies courage and leadership, and who will attend Windward Community College, will receive a scholarship of approximately $1,000. Albert retires June 30 after 47 years of service in the Department of Education. The scholarship was created in honor of Albert's service to children, said Harris, senior program officer for education.
All current juniors and their parents/guardians are invited to attend the informational meeting TONIGHT, Wednesday June 3 from 6-8PM in the cafe. Junior Class Counselor, Mr. Hafoka, will be presenting valuable information for next year, the senior year. Do not miss this meeting!
High-profile commencement speakers usually get all the attention around graduation time, but in Hawaii it was the graduating class themselves who stole the show.
The Class of 2015 at Hawaii’s Kahuku High and Intermediate School broke into an over eight-minute medley during their graduation, featuring songs ranging from “Shake It Off” by Taylor Swift to "Wrecking Ball" by Miley Cyrus and Bruno Mars’ “Uptown Funk.”

Self described "water rats," Kahea and Nohea Kahaulelio took their love of the ocean into the pool about six years ago when their uncle encouraged them to give water polo a try.
The sisters, largely inseparable out of the water, went on to contribute to OIA championships each of their four years at Kahuku and turned in twin performances in the Red Raiders' 17-3 win over Kapolei in the tournament final on Saturday at Central Oahu Regional Park.
The twins scored four goals each and the Red Raiders won their sixth straight league title and 12th in the past 13 years.
"It was amazing to finish this with my sister," Nohea Kahaulelio said. "People always say, ‘Why are you guys always together?' and it's like ‘Because it's better when we're together.' It's all teamwork and it was awesome."
