PBS Hawaii receives $10,000 gift from KTA Super Stores


PBS Hawaii has received a $10,000 gift from Hilo-based KTA Super Stores to support participation in HIKI NO: The Nation’s First Statewide Student News Network.

Presented by KTA Super Stores President and CEO Barry Taniguchi in memory of his parents and company co-founders Koichi and Taniyo Taniguchi, and K Taniguchi, Ltd., the donation will assist teachers and students in attending HIKI NO events and workshops, and help provide on-site training by PBS Hawaii staff.

This ensures that more students from Hawaii Island will have access to this unique educational opportunity.

Twelve of the 63 public, private and charter schools participating in HIKI NO’s second season are located on Hawaii Island, the largest island representation outside Oahu.

Season Two of HIKI NO premieres 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 13 on PBS Hawaii.

As Hawaii’s only public television station, PBS Hawaii reaches viewers across the island state. Locally owned and independent, the non profit media organization is evolving on-air and online to best serve the people of Hawaii.

Through quality programming and community interaction, PBS Hawaii connects with citizens of all ages to share lifelong learning, culture and the arts, and trustworthy information.
