Eight Molokai student-athletes were selected as Sports Spotlight athletes, sponsored by Honolulu-based franchise Alexander & Baldwin, Inc. The recognition honors one noteworthy male and female each week from Maui County high schools. This year, Molokai High students Natalia Levi, James Corpuz, Akona Adolpho, Mikayla Pico, Kailen Inouye, Solomon Maliu III, Kayla Matson and Moriah Jenkins were honored. On May 14, these students attended a banquet at the Maui Arts and Cultural Center to recognize the Sports Spotlight athletes in Maui County.
“Student-athletes selected demonstrate excellence in academics as well as athletics and are positive leaders and role models on our campus,” said MHS athletics director Camie Kimball.
In addition to being featured in a weekly Maui News column, a $200 donation in honor of each student is given to the high school’s athletic program from the Alexander & Baldwin Foundation, a charitable organization funded by Alexander & Baldwin, Inc.
