Robert Tamura said the Kauai High School Class of 1950 had 212 students, one of the largest classes.
“This was the last year we had students from Hanalei,” said Sumako Ichimasa. “The next year, they opened Kapaa High School and the Hanalei students went there.”
William Yamanaka of the Class of 1950 spearheaded an alumni family picnic to launch three major events celebrating the centennial of Kauai High School.
Grace Takabayashi of the centennial committee said for those who missed the events, there are order forms for the centennial booklet on www.kauaihigh.org, or Kauai High Centennial on Facebook.
Events for the centennial included the picnic, a centennial carnival on the school’s athletic field and gym, and an alumni luau at the Kilohana luau pavilion featuring the music of Amy Hanaialii Gilliom, Sunday, the exact date the school opened its doors — 100 years ago!
