KHS Interact Gets Into The Act
Kaiser High School Interact Club recently inducted new members and now has more than 70 students pledged to “service through friendship” on the campus and in the community. The ceremony also honored their efforts and assistance to Hawaii Kai Rotary Club and the community as a whole.
Sponsored by the Hawaii Kai club, the Interact students collaborate with their adult mentors on many East Oahu projects, such as the Ducky Dash, rain garden building and an annual Thanksgiving lunch party at Lunalilo Home.
“These students are so well-spoken, enthusiastic and delightful!” declared Linda Coble, a veteran leader among Hawaii’s 49 Rotary clubs. Coble is an East Oahu resident along with Lyla Berg, who chairs Rotary’s Youth Services (New Generations) committee. Berg was present to induct the students at the Sept. 17 ceremony at JAIMS. Youth Services’ mission is to mentor and develop relationships with middle, high school and college clubs through mutual service.
Teacher David Higa advises the Kaiser club, and senior Dylan Ramos is president this year. There is a long todo list, including support at Hahaione Elementary School’s fun fair this Saturday. Also on the list – with many tasks already accomplished – are beach cleanups, campus cleanups, Trick-or-Treat for UNICEF, Honolulu Marathon cheering, storm-drain stenciling, more Lunalilo Home visits, and help with Race for the Cure, Cop-on-Top, a Strike Out Polio bowling benefit and feeding the homeless.
