Wordless Wednesday – Grand Opening of the Helene Hale Gymnasium at Pahoa High School

Well it was over two and a half years ago when Helene Hale was present for the groundbreaking of the new Pahoa High School Gymnasium.

Well the gym is now completed and today was the “Grand Opening” of the Gym.

There have been some games played in the Gymnasium already so today was more ceremonial then anything.

This morning, the Pahoa students celebrated a “Dagger Day Celebration” attended by some of the same folks that were there more then two years ago as the gym was officially opened today.

Students Makana Agcaoili and Christine-Joy Diz were the emcees for the assembly and did a great job of keeping things on track.

I remember during the ground breaking of the gymnasium that Helene Hale herself was glad that the gym was being built and she hoped that she would be around to see it completed… and thankfully she was.

Mayor Kenoi was on hand and mentioned how he was a former Pahoa student himself and talked of folks doubting that a kid like him could ever become a lawyer.
