KHS In­ter­act Gets Into The Act

MidWeek Islander (East Oahu) - - EAST OAHU ISLANDER / NOVEMBER 6, 2013 / PAGE 3 -

Kaiser High School In­ter­act Club re­cently in­ducted new mem­bers and now has more than 70 stu­dents pledged to “ser­vice through friend­ship” on the cam­pus and in the com­mu­nity. The cer­e­mony also hon­ored their ef­forts and as­sis­tance to Hawaii Kai Ro­tary Club and the com­mu­nity as a whole.

Spon­sored by the Hawaii Kai club, the In­ter­act stu­dents col­lab­o­rate with their adult men­tors on many East Oahu projects, such as the Ducky Dash, rain gar­den bu i l d i n g and an an­nual Thanks­giv­ing lunch party at Lu­nalilo Home.

“Th­ese stu­dents are so well-spo­ken, en­thu­si­as­tic and de­light­ful!” de­clared Linda Coble, a vet­eran leader among Hawaii’s 49 Ro­tary clubs. Coble is an East Oahu res­i­dent along with Lyla Berg, who chairs Ro­tary’s Youth Ser­vices (New Gen­er­a­tions) com­mit­tee. Berg was present to in­duct the stu­dents at the Sept. 17 cer­e­mony at JAIMS. Youth Ser­vices’ mis­sion is to men­tor and de­velop re­la­tion­ships with mid­dle, high school and col­lege clubs through mu­tual ser­vice.

Teacher David Higa ad­vises the Kaiser cl ub, and s enior Dy­lan Ramos is pres­i­dent this year. There is a long todo list, in­clud­ing sup­port at Ha­haione Ele­men­tary School’s f un fa i r t hi s Satur­day. Also on the list — with many t asks al­ready ac­com­plished — are beach cleanups, cam­pus cleanups, Trickor-Treat for UNICEF, Honolulu Marathon cheer­ing, storm-drain sten­cil­ing, more Lu­nalilo Home vis­its, and help with Race for the Cure, Cop-on-Top, a Strike Out Po­lio bowl­ing ben­e­fit and feed­ing the home­less.
