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

(L-R): Suzanne Tran, SA President; Kane Ruiz, SCC Representative 2; Chris Pham, SA Clerk; Brandon Mendoza, SA Treasurer; Miah Emerson, Junior Class President; Ryan Fielding, Senior Class President; Kayla Gurtiza, SA Recording Secretary; Vivian Hui, SA Corresponding Secretary; Dwight Joo, SA Vice President; Arista Arii, Sophomore Class President; Jack Schwab, HSSC Representative; Nathan Smith, Freshman Class President; and Kristen Yamate, SCC Representative 1.

The Moanalua High School Executive Council is made up of thirteen 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.
