On 04/29/16, I attended an exciting meeting regarding Wai’anae High School’s (WHS) hopes to build a storefront to sell various products produced by the students, through the school’s culinary, aquaculture, electronics, Searider Productions, and other programs. The Storefront would be located on DOE’s lands, located in the area between the harbor and the school, off Farrington Hwy near the entrance to the baseball field.
“The school wants to support the economic health of the community by teaching students how to run a small business and be financially responsible. The storefront will provide a safe environment where students can learn from their mistakes,” said WHS principal Disa Hauge.
Special mahalo nui loa to Senate President Ronald Kouchi for organizing the meeting and recruiting Pacific Architects to donate their time to assist with preparing drawings and offering other planning assistance.
Standing, L-R: Ryan Oshita, WHS VP; Lei Aken, WHS; Senate President Ronald Kouchi; Candy Suiso, WHS Searider Productions; Edmund Ibarra, Pacific Architects Intern (Note: Edmund Ibarra is from the Wai’anae Coast).
Sitting, L-R: Disa Hauge, WHS Principal;
