At last week’s City Council meeting, councilmember’s had the priveledge to recognize Junior Primacio and students from Laie Elementary.

A longtime member of the Ko’olauloa Neighborhood Board, Kahuku’s Junior Primacio was honored for his years of community service within the Ko’olauloa area. A product of the Kahuku Sugar Plantation, Junior has been a part of over 15 community organizations and has participated in the neighborhood board system since 1977.

Junior has become a household name at the board meetings and I do not expect him to slow down anytime soon with this community activism.

Laie Elementary sixth graders Kamaile Aluli, Kaylee Alana Miller and Truman Spring took home the top prize in the Best Website category at the 2011 National History Day contest held at the University of Maryland.

The student’s submission, titled “Between a Rock and a Hard Place: the Battle Over Hetch Hetchy,” represented the group’s thesis that building the dam at Hetch Hetchy Valley in Yosemite Park led to greater protection of national forests with an array of videos and pictures tied into a well built site.

Mahalo to you all for showing what special people come out of Ko’olauloa!
