Luane Higuchi, 2012 Leeward Oahu District Teacher of the Year

Text of the award: The Hawai`i State Senate congratulates Luane Higuchi 2012 Leeward Oahu District Teacher of the Year. Our Hawaii public school system is greatly enriched by the contributions of hundreds of dedicated teachers and support staff.  While all are deserving of our admiration and gratitude, it is also fitting to acknowledge those who excel in their field and represent great hope for the future of education in our islands.

Luane Higuchi—a media teacher at Wai’anae Intermediate School—is one such person.  As the recent recipient of the Leeward Oahu District Teacher of the Year Award, she has been recognized as a teacher who demonstrates the highest qualities of professional educator.

The people of Wai’anae are indeed fortunate to have the services of Luane Higuchi, whose expertise has been demonstrated in academic summer workshops and award-winning public service announcements created by her talented students.  With her help, our young people learn values and skills that will benefit them throughout their lives.

The Senate of the twenty-sixth Legislature—in celebration of Education Week—joins with Wai’anae Coast residents and all of Hawaii’s people in congratulating Luane Higuchi on winning this prestigious award.  We wish her a long and rewarding future in her chosen field of education.
