Hawaii House of Representatives to Honor Kahuku High School Teams for Exceptional Athletic and Academic Achievement
School produced state champion teams in varsity football and civic engagement
Two Kahuku High School teams will be recognized Monday for outstanding achievement. The 2012 Division I State Champion varsity football team earned a perfect 12-0 record and continues Kahuku’s strong football tradition of excellence. Additionally, the school’s “We the People: The Citizen and the Constitution” team won the state competition of the educational civic engagement program.
Six of the past eight NFL Super Bowls have featured a Kahuku High School graduate. The team is gaining a national reputation for producing standout college and National Football League (NFL) players.
“We the People” encourages critical thinking about civics by requiring students to submit essays and face a live panel of judges to test their knowledge of the U.S. Constitution. The team will go on to represent Hawaii at the national finals in April in Washington, D.C.
