Kalani Class of 2019 VIPs

Since he took the reigns at Kalani about 14 years ago, Principal Mitch Ohtani has made it a point to help honor Falcon graduates on their 50th year reunions by inviting them to that year's graduation ceremony.
   Six from our Class of '69 were able to take him up on his invitation and were treated as VIPs at the graduation ceremony of the Class of 2019.

Kathy Otani (Mitch's sister), Lynn Nakamura Bryan, Debbie Coen Kula, David Kaneshiro, Debbie Pinzari Aikala, and Phil Van Alst.

It proved to also be a special night for Phil as he wasn't able to attend his own graduation, so 50 years later he finally attended a Kalani graduation.  Congratulations, Phil!

The graduation was held at the Stan Sheriff Center on the University of Hawaii Campus.
We used the Waikiki Shell for our graduation back in 1969.
