Ewa Makai Middle School teacher Ethan Toyota accepts, on behalf of his class, a HIKI NŌ achievement award from PBS Hawaii Board Member and retired educator Jean Kiyabu. School VPs Geri Martin and Ursula Kawaguchi, on the far sides of the photo, helped celebrate the occasion along with former principal of Maili Elementary, Linda Victor (in the blue aloha blouse).
The group also saluted another Ewa Makai Middle School science teacher, David Wong, third from the left below, who was featured in the students' winning story in the "Best Personal Profile" category of competition.
HIKI NŌ is a 21st-century education program and a half-hour weekly on-air and online program. It airs at 7:30 pm Thursdays on PBS Hawaii and you can view it online anytime, at www.PBSHawaii.org/hikino
Congratulations, Ewa Makai Middle School!
