MHIS Gears Up for Landmark Anniversary
Planning begins for 75th celebration.
By Jennifer Smith
Molokai High School (MHIS) alumni will soon have yet another reason to proudly celebrate their alma mater. With the 75th anniversary only six years away, the Alumni Association has already begun planning for the momentous occasion.
Unlike the annual luau that hosts every graduating year sharing the last digit of the current graduating class, all MHIS graduates are invited to attend the 75th Anniversary celebrations.
Several exciting plans are underway, and the planning committee is asking alumni to dig through their old boxes and share old pictures, articles, and annuals. They are requesting graduates to submit these memories for a special collection of 75 years of MHIS that will be available at the 2014 celebration.
The planning committee is also asking the Molokai community to begin spreading the word now. With travel prices on the rise, it is important that friends, family, and perhaps a favorite former MHIS faculty member can begin saving now to ensure they will make it to the event.
While the anniversary may seem ages away, planning an event of this magnitude will take a community effort, and the Alumni Association invites anyone interested in participating in the preparations to please call Melody Alcon at 553-3443.
