Kapolei High School teacher, Cynthia Chong, was recently recognized for her outstanding service by Spectrum and Hawaii Pizza Hut. The two organizations annually honor outstanding teachers from the different high schools, who are making a difference in the lives of their students. The award news was published in the Honolulu Star Advertiser. Cynthia currently teaches 11th and 12th grade English that includes expository writing and literature. Along with the recognition, she received a tote bag on wheels that she uses to carry her papers. She said, “I also received warm recognition from my colleagues, students, neighbors, and friends.”
Cynthia was nominated by her school administrators for this honor. She commented, “For me, the validation from the administration that I perpetuate our ‘One Team Ohana’ culture was gratifying.” Our warm congratulations and aloha!
