Sen. David Ige, Duke Aiona, Rep. Takai and Charles Djou visit Maryknoll for WeVoteHawaii Rally
Maryknoll School Spartans vote! On Wednesday, October 22, the school teamed up with WeVoteHawaii to get special guests like Senator David Ige, former Lieutenant Governor Duke Aiona, former Representative Charles Djou, Representative Mark Takai, and Representative Della Au Belatti to visit the school.
Guests were greeted with paper-chain leis made by our grade school students and welcomed with so many smiles. Guests then had the opportunity to speak and interact with the entire student body made up of more than 1,250 students in the Maryknoll Community Center Gym. This WeVoteHawaii Rally was able to set a real impression on the Spartans. As a group, they learned about the importance of voting and civic engagement.
After speaking in the gym to the whole school, our special guests were able to sit down and have a smaller session with the high school senate officers. Those in the room heard about the great benefits that come from becoming a leader, what makes a leader, and what kind of hurdles they may have to overcome when representing a large amount of people. This experience has had an all-around positive impact on the students, staff, faculty, and entire school. Know the value of your vote, and go cast your ballot on November 4!
