Konawaena High School graduated more than 140 seniors Saturday, May 23. Principal Shawn Suzuki and keynote speaker Mayor Billy Kenoi were among those to congratulate the students. Valedictorian was Teagan Nakamoto, salutatorian was Lexi Welborn and class president was Katelyn Mitchell.

The students have earned more than $737,000 in scholarships, Kenoi said. Nakamoto was named a Gates Millennium Scholar, which carries a $200,000 award.

Konawaena Alma Mater:

Hail Konawaena pride of Hawaii,
we thy children sing;
Daughters of Pele Mauna Loa cradled,
make us worthy of thy name.
To thee, oh jewel of the Konas,
jewel within thee island jewels;
We thy loyal sons and daughters pledge our lives our hopes and aims.
May the light of truth you kindled burn as bright as Pele’s fire;
Lead us on throughout all the ages,
Hail Konawaena Hail to thee
