LIHUE — HawaiiUSA Federal Credit Union, in partnership with ScoringLive, named the Kapaa High School Football Team as the 2019 winners of its “Life matters Award” for their cleanup efforts following the April 2019 record-setting rainfall and flooding.

A check in the amount of $1,000 was presented to the Kapa‘a High School Athletic Department.

The flooding’s devastating effects could be felt across the island of Kauai, but were felt particularly hard in Hanalei where it left the Aloha School Early Learning Center and Wai‘oli Hui‘ia Church reeling and in need of emergency repairs.

The Kapa‘a High School Football Team volunteered their time and energies to restore damaged classrooms, fixtures, landscapes, and furniture, as well as being a source of some much needed optimism and relief.

“The ‘Life matters Award’ recognizes a public or private school athletic team that embodies a winning spirit, both on and off the field, while striving to make real differences in their community,” said Karl Yoneshige, HawaiiUSA President and CEO.

“Kapa‘a High School Football Team’s heart to serve reflects the values HawaiiUSA hold in the highest esteem—the desire to help our members, their families, and our communities make their dreams come true—and resoundingly speaks to the commitment Kapa‘a High School has in developing the most exceptional student-athletes,” added Yoneshige. “They have set an example that other students, as well as adults alike, should be proud to follow.”
