AFJROTC TRIENNIAL INSPECTION and AWARDS
Our AFJROTC cadets were inspected yesterday by the Regional Manager of the Air Force Headquarters, Mr. Ben Young. Throughout the day, Mr. Young visited with the cadets and their classes. During a gym assembly where the cadets all gathered and he provided some words of wisdom, “AFJROTC is about you,” he told the cadets, “itʻs about you as an individual and being a part of something larger than yourself.” He stressed that it was important to recognize important people in their lives and how they are there to help support them and achieve their successes. At the end, Mr. Young presented two Top Performer Awards. This award is given to only 2% of all AFJROTC cadets. Congratulations to Jaden Keith and Shelby Boyd for being Kaiserʻs Top Performers. Outstanding!

Kaiser Wins 4th Annual Chinese Diction Contest!
Created by the Confucius Institute at the University of Hawaiʻi at Manoa to promote enthusiasm for Chinese characters and increase the understanding the culture behind them, the Chinese Diction Contest took place this past Sunday, October 28th.
Four students represented Kaiser High, the only public school participant; Nicolas Okazaki, Hanna Chen, Deborah Yuan and Carlyn Kagamida. Using a white board, teams had only 25 seconds to write their dictated character. If it was incorrect, they were immediately eliminated.
What adds interest to this contest, the rules state that; 1) Chinese citizens are not eligible, and 2) Students who have completed their primary education in schools using Chinese as one of the languages of instruction are not eligible.
At the end of round, Kaiser and Punahou tied for 1st place. Congratulations Cougars!
