Back On Campus
On Thursday, August 8, 2019, about 25 members of our Class of '69 visited their alma mater on a trip back to the Kalani High School campus. For many of them, it was their first trip back since they graduated, some 50 years ago!
After meeting up with Principal Mitch Otani at the Administration Building, we started the tour, visiting the library (for some of us, it was the first time there … really?), then continuing through the different buildings stopping and visiting different classes. The students were somewhat interested to imagine how these grandpa & grandma-aged people once attended their school.
Following the tour, the group picked up their lunch in the cafeteria. Cost? $5.50! Far from the $ .25 we paid way back when. Mahalo to Principal Mitch for treating the group.
The cafeteria needed to make room for students arriving for lunch, so the group was moved back to the library. It was a hot and humid day and, although there have been many improvements to the campus, the cafeteria was still not air conditioned. The group was withering in the heat, looking like they just finished their daily workouts, so they gladly welcomed and enjoyed the cool library.
