New episode of ‘Kaua‘i Shining Stars’ released

LIHU‘E — The seventh episode of “Kaua‘i Shining Stars in Education” is out.

“It’s the second to last episode,” said Producer Sean Doi, a Department of Education Complex Resource teacher. “We planned to do eight shows for the school year, so we’re on track to hit our target.”

The new episode features stories about the Kaua‘i public school system, including how the Kaua‘i High School Key Club volunteers its time to benefit the local community and a peek into the Sequences Transition to Education in Public School Parent-Child Fair.

Doi also goes behind the scenes with high school students in the Kaua‘i Performing Arts Class, which recently completed its production of “Anything Goes,” the award-winning musical comedy by Cole Porter.

“I was just impressed with the talent coming out of that program,” Doi said.

Finally, the episode wishes the best of luck to Chiefess Kamakahelei Middle School eighth-grader Akira Takabayashi as he prepares to travels to Washington, D.C. later this month to compete in the 2013 Scripps National Spelling Bee.

“We always try to get a variety of stories,” Doi said.
