MOANALUA HIGH SCHOOL STUDENT ACTIVITIES: "PUT OTHERS BEFORE YOURSELF!"

Back Row (l-r): Vivian Hui, SA Historian; Jack Schwab, SA Treasurer; Jazzmin White, Sophomore Class President; Kayla Gurtiza, SCC Representative 1; Ryan Fielding, Junior Class President; Suzanne Tran, SA Clerk; Kristen Yamate, SCC Representative 2; and Seolbin Hong, Freshman Class President.

Front Row - Seniors (l-r): Luke Schwab, HSSC Representative; Shareen Chee, SA President; Jasmine Chee, SA Vice President; Emily Quach, SA Corresponding Secretary; Maya Balmilero, Senior Class President; and Skyler Chun, SA Recording Secretary.

The Moanalua High School Executive Council is made up of fourteen volunteers. VOLUNTEERS! While officers are elected, they choose to run knowing that if they win, there is no physical reward, no letter grade, no incentive other than the pure satisfaction of doing a good job and representing the student body. At times, we achieve great success while at other times, we achieve somewhat less, but it is always a learning process. While we can take away much satisfaction from doing a good job, we can also learn from mistakes and try to better ourselves the next time. And so, at the end of our terms, while we do not earn a credit, a letter grade or even a certificate of achievement proving our accomplishments, we can take away the self-satisfaction in knowing that we did our best for the students, school and community, and that positive experience is something we can really use as contributing adult members of society.

10/5: ARE YA READY KIDS?

AYE AYE, CAPTAIN!  The theme for this year's Complex Leadership Conference (CLC) was "Soaking Up Leadership," using the popular Spongebob Squarepants characters for grouping.  Students from all five elementary and middle schools that eventually feed into Moanalua High School were in attendance to learn leadership skills through workshops and team building activities.  Thank you to all of the advisors from each school as well as the Moanalua High School library staff for hosting a last minute change in venue as the usual Student Center air conditioning was out.  Special thanks also to the SA Executive council for adapting to the changes and making it happen!
