Mahalo to Coach Dave Walker (he couldn’t stay away from the track meet following last week’s Rotary Track and Field meet!) for updating the results where Kauai High School tracksters finished the night by taking the boys and girls team scoring. Congratulations to Taegan Keep on getting the top female honor, and Island School’s Joshua Graves for getting the top male honor for the Rotary meet.
Undertones of conservation conversation are rumbling through the halls of Kauai Community College, as the traditional April 20 Earth Day has been expanded into a month-long event. Heather Lee, a student from Wailua who is set to graduate in May, will speak on her recent work with Geographic Information System mapping technology (GIS) to study pueo, or the Hawaiian short-eared owl.
KFEST, a Korean pop-up event, will be happening April 22 at the Pomaika‘i Ballroom from 11 a.m. Korean food, dancing, ramen-eating contest and special performances are scheduled to benefit the Ronald McDonald House Charities of Hawaii. Nicki Lee and Stephanie Fujita are putting the event together through Kidz For A Cause, a local nonprofit founded by Lee.
