Congratulations Jenalyn and Sharmaine on graduating from Waipahu High School!


130520 Sharmaine and Jenalyn Waipahu grad

Congratulations to Sharmaine and Jenalyn on their graduation from Waipahu High School! I met them when they were in the seventh grade at Waipahu Intermediate School. I first met Jenalyn when I was campaigning door-to-door while I was in the Hawaii State House of Representatives. They interviewed me a number of times on camera for their Olelo video production program. Later, I worked with them on a program we did on Olelo for a couple of years where we interviewed people involved in the community at various events.
