———— Congratulations to Sean
on getting one of the three television awards recently for his “Shining Stars” productions for the state Department of Education. Sean was one of the many people who checked out the 16th annual Sequenced Transition to Education in the Public Schools Saturday. Congratulations, too, to Jeannie Odo, who has been doing this parent and child fair for the past 16 years with Arnold Meister (definitely a Living Treasure!).
Coach Beau Acoba had his soccer game rained out so was able to lead his Tsunami Taiko keiki, and Kaulana Finn was busy helping Nicole Cowen at the Big Brothers Big Sisters table so couldn’t make the Kauai Democratic Convention (it’s all right, Daryl Dobashi was there!).
It was a pleasure to see Sara Miura and Joy Koerte with the PBS table. Marissa Sandblom was supposed to visit, too, but it was off to check out Laurie Ho and Club Musubi for the Kauai Family and Community Education Character Counts essay winners for fourthgrade students.
