Happy Birthday KHS

Kauai High School graduates will be talking story for a weekend in September as they reminisce about their high school days at Kauai High. 

The celebration begins with an alumni family picnic at Lydgate Park from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday, Sept. 12.  The following day there will be a Centennial Carnival at Kauai High School on the P.E. Field from noon to 11 p.m. A craft fair, Fun N Kwazy Rides and Zumba classes will be a few of the highlights for graduates to enjoy.

The culmination of the event is a luau at 6 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 14 at Kilohana Plantation. The site will be alive with music, food and old students and staff can share memories from their alma mater.  

“We’re inviting past principals, if they’re still around,” said luau co-chairperson Darnell Aquino. “We’re also asking past alumni who are entertainers to perform. We’re hoping for a good turnout, maybe 500.” 

Aquino has good memories of her high school days. She graduated in 1978.

“I played volleyball and basketball and lettered in both,” Aquino said.
