Continuum. Oh, my. Such a broad topic and yet a word that is so very appropriate when examining the 2013-2014 academic year at our Upper School. In taking a step back and viewing our year together in a macro - as opposed to a micro - fashion, we see cohesion. We see duration. We see sequencing. We see collaboration. And, yes, we see much aloha wafting throughout, to be carried by Ka Makani from this year to next. Continuum? Indeed.
about it! Good sportsmanship? In more ways than I can count! Respect for all members of our ‘ohana? Every day and in a thousand ways! These are but a few of the areas in which our seniors have distinguished themselves. Just as the Class of 2014 took the hand-off from their predecessors, so, too, will our present juniors soon be handed the ball from our newest graduates. Continuum? Indeed.
state championships in girls soccer and boys basketball. The fabulous art show. The camaraderie and collegiality so evident each week in the dining hall. Good-natured Current Events Jeopardy competition at our Friday flagpole gatherings. The Olympics. “Hug Day” on February 14. Stellar college acceptances. Ukulele strumming outside my office window and in the Taylor Commons courtyard. The silliness (“Barndog”!) of certain days. The seriousness of others. The laughter. And, yes, also the tears. Continuum? Indeed.
Of course, each academic year delivers its own special highlights. Our fabulous Class of 2014 has Yet, in a very real sense, the played a large role in helping to achievements of one year define this year by promoting the inextricably connect to a previous principles that we hold dearest as year and undeniably pave the path To all of those who have a school. Perseverance? Our to a coming year. The spectacular contributed so positively to the seniors have demonstrated this in production of 42nd Street. Our vitality and success of HPA’s 64th spades! Spirituality? No doubt students inspiring marches toward year, I extend to you my warmest
thanks. You have added immeasurably to our school’s traditions, principles, and mission. In doing so, you have strengthened this educational community - a place we love, a school like no other. No matter where you go and what you do, HPA will be in your heart, and you will be in the heart of HPA. Continuum? Indeed. Continuum at its best and most precious! Aloha,

HPA offers a continuum of exceptional opportunities. In 2013-2014, we observed the commitment and vitality of our student body as so many rose to take on these extraordinary challenges and were rewarded with amazing outcomes. We were enthralled by the cohesive performance of 35 tap dancers on stage in 42nd Street and brought to tears by another 23 actors in Flowers for Algernon. Then we witnessed the endurance of our athletes as they brought home

time. We are all students of many things. We are all teachers of something to someone. Our days together move to the rhythm of the school year, marked as it is by triumphs and failures, performances, creations, state championships, mundane policies of cell phone use and dress code. We share in all of these by virtue of our membership in this community, our places along the HPA continuum. Yet, when one steps back to take in our great expanse, the extent of our diversity
is made manifest, stretching as we do . . . along the continuum. And, in homage to our new Learning Management System, a haiku or two: A continuum. Polar opposites joined In relationship. Far flung end points Imperceptibly linked By the multitudes.-
D e a n o f S t u d e n t L ife In 2014 at HPA, we can take risks. We can try, fail, and try again. We can laugh, cry and be vulnerable. We can point out our similarities and our differences- discuss them and laugh about them. With so many different personalities, ideas and cultures woven into our own special HPA mosaic, we have a school culture that challenges the strong, nurtures the meek, and provides an arena for long lasting
M a r k N o e tz e L
through many fun activities. Seeing each grade level work together to perfect their circle sit and then go on to support every student to be successful in events is very heartwarming. For me, watching our 2014 spirited and diverse seniors in their sea of white perform their co-ed hula and sing Hole Waimea, offers the best validation of our traditions as they demonstrate their love for their ‘ohana. Remarkably, 10 of these seniors have been at HPA from kindergarten - an amazing 13-year commitment to our school!
D e a n o f A c a d e m ic s We, the constituent parts of the HPA continuum exist together day by day, side by side, each individual imperceptibly different from those individuals next to him or her. A continuum. Much like our beloved isle - buffeted by the mighty wind, nurtured by the gentle rain, cheered by the warm sun, and redeemed by the ubiquitous rainbow - which extends its bounty to endemics and invasives alike across eight climate zones. A continuum. So are we varied and one at the same

trophies in boys and girls cross country, boys and girls soccer, swimming, and boys basketball. Triumphant results despite heartwrenching moments! Interwoven in the flow of the year, the four classes used their annual retreats to perpetuate “Happiness Projects” in our community - offering gifts to our gardens, resources to our Food Bank, and CPR skills of survival. The Olympics, our favorite class tradition, continued to perpetuate our values of teamwork, civility, and ingenuity
success. We can work this way because we have continuum. We are built with many different pieces, each coming together in cohesion. We are built to challenge and withstand challenge. Not every day is easy here, and we embrace this. In my fifth year at HPA I am excited to be a part of the traditions that have made us better and the changes that push us forward. We continue
to strive to be durable in all programs, modifying and fortifying in important areas such as academics, athletics and residential life. Our students are the vital points along this continuum, consistently pushing themselves in searching for opportunities to change and excel. We continue.
D e a n o f C itiz e n s h ip , H o n o r , Sr S e c u r i t y As a coach and dean, it is always gratifying to work with our students who continuously strive for excellence in all areas of school life. 2013-2014 presented a continuum of academic and cocurricular opportunities. Our students faced unique challenges and demonstrated huge growth and endurance as they coped with the demands placed on them. More often than not, when faced with an obstacle, our students
have learned to stay the course and utilize the strength of teammates and classmates while keeping true to their individual responsibilities. This complex interrelationship of support has made our students stronger and more focused for their next endeavor. The result of their reliance upon each other has been that they’ve each have achieved more than if they went forward alone. I've witnessed this
repeatedly in the areas of academics, athletics, and simple civility. I believe the cohesion each class develops will perpetuate lifetime bonds to each other and to their HPA community. Knowing how to work with others is a key that will forever help them be successful. The Class of 2014 is about to realize this, and I wish them the best as they move on to realize their post-secondary goals.
* When the yearbook staff gave me the theme: Continuum, I panicked: this year has felt like anything but a continuation. How was I supposed to write about traditions when it seems like this year has been in a constant state of transition? What positivity could I add to this discussion when, for the first year, sophomores and freshmen could not attend International Day workshops, assembly could not be enjoyed in the comfortable seats of GPAC, and the seniors did not get their much-anticipated Snow Day? It seemed impossible to convince myself that this year could be characterized by the word Continuum, but then I noticed something: we are all still chugging along. We could have complained and boycotted our academic and extra-curricular responsibilities, and maybe we did for a while, but why are we still smiling? Why is it that despite all of these upsetting changes and shortcomings that we still hear about twelve hour long student-organized talent show rehearsals, anxiety dreams about lip syncing performances, and folders of blueprints for a class-wide lap sitting? Why? Because WE are in control of our own happiness. Four people scarfing down pies in an empty gym is a lonely, somewhat concerning scene, but add four hundred screaming, painted faces in the stands and you have an unforgettable memory. Traditions cannot live on their own: a tradition does not have the ability to rile up an entire campus, it is a willingness to participate and a love for our classmates that offers a body to these traditions. So through the tumultuous changes this year, I have discovered HPAâ€™s most vital tradition: our undying spirit. Seniors, it seems that our long, seemingly endless journey together is almost over: HALLELUJAH! But while we are receiving heavy envelopes from colleges and attending our last flagpoles, please remember that white dresses and red sashes alone will not bring our families to tears, it will be the beautiful beings filling them.
Hawaii P r e p Student Council What a year of change! The HPA Student Council absorbed the shock from all the academic and community adjustments, and pushed through. Embracing the theme of progress, and led by the new student council advisor, Arati Clarry, this group of outstanding students has changed the standing of our school for the best. Tasked with such things as moving assembly from GPAC to the gym, re-designing the dress code, and much more, the progress of the school moved forward this year and progressed for the best. Completely committed to bringing the values of HPA into the school day and the community, the 2013-2014 HPA Student Council worked hard to keep the school functioning smoothly while keeping the traditions of HPA alive and well. Such traditions included Olympics which still stands at the heart and soul of student life at HPA. Progress and flexibility go hand in hand for each and every member of HPA's Student Council. Thank you to the entire HPA student body for making this year a year to remember.

S t a f f 2 0 14 Coming off of a huge success with the previous year's yearbook "Zest," two year veterans Bo Bleckel, Alina Katase, and Connor Peterson, were hungry to make an even greater edition of the Ka Makani. Our yearbook class adviser, Mr. O'Leary compiled an eager staff and, as usual, we as a group started with a blank canvas. Made up of 10 seniors and 2 juniors, we dedicated our lives, working long hours for almost nine months to create this timeless yearbook. At the beginning, our dedicated group of twelve staff members were stumped to pick the theme to symbolize the 2013-2014 school year. After three long months, we chose our theme "ContinuumsSpuring the process of deciding on a theme, we worked on our opening section and possibly the greatest manifest of continuum in a yearbook, the senior section. Continuing the tradition of giving each senior an entire page, the crew gathered photographs, words, and quotes and created 108 pages within the first three months of class. During class time, productivity was always at its highest, even while attempting to make silly impersonations, fighting over Pandora music streams, bringing back stanky legg competitions, and sharing treats with each other throughout the week before and after class. While this class of 12 was challenged by an abundant workload, our creative high energy and humor got us through each and every day, no matter how much stressful the approaching deadline may have been. As a class we discovered the key to creating a genuine and ever-lasting yearbook was to find the balance between fun and focus. This yearbook class focuses on teaching true twenty-first century skills including collaboration, communication, and critical thinking. None of these essential skills will-work if you don't have great relationships with your adviser and fellow staff members. We all did, and for that, we are grateful. Once again, the Ka Makani yearbook staff has created a memento that all HPA students, past, present, and future, will enjoy for generations to come.

James Kainalu "Kimo" Higgins was born in Honolulu, Hawaii on February 18 ,19 6 8 to Jim and Mary Helen Higgins. Known affectionately to family and friends as â€œKimo" from an early age, Mr. Higgins and his fam ily moved to Kealakekua, Hawaii at the age of three. Mr. Higgins attended Konawaena Elementary School and excelled in athletics and academics, though his heart and mind always belonged at his family's beach cabin at Honomalino in South Kona. Here he spent his form ative years learning to fish and dive from his fam ily elders. Mr. Higgins began attending HPA in 1980 as a seventh grade day student at the Middle School, and quickly adapted to the demands of a preparatory environment. His sharp wit, cleverness, and kind personality were infectious, and he developed friendships with his classmates that have lasted a lifetime. Mr. Higgins began attending the Upper Campus in 1982 and his high
m m m m
school academic and athletic career is remembered by faculty, classmates, and friends as simply stellar. Mr. Higgins was a member of the cross country team that brought home HPA's first HHSAA state title in 1983. In addition, he was a member of four consecutive BIIF championship team titles, and personally captured an individual cross country title, as well as being the state runner up in the 3200 meter run in track. Mr. Higgins was an early model of what we now know and refer to as the HPA "scholar-athlete." He was an inductee in the Cum Laude Society his senior year, and credits his lifelong love of learning to legendary HPA teachers Mr. Stan Shutes, Dr. Gordon Bryson, and Mr. Marc Rice. Mr. Higgins graduated from HPA in 1986 and went to the University of North Carolina on a NROTC scholarship, where he received his BA in Economics in three years. Upon graduation, Mr. Higgins
was commissioned as an officer in the United States Navy, where he spent years serving his country at sea, while sim ultaneously hand-line fishing off of naval transport ships for mahi-mahi. In 1994, Mr. Higgins was involved in a devastating car accident that almost took his life. Upon re-awakening from a two week coma, and undergoing spinal surgery, Mr. Higgins had to re-learn how to walk and write. The unwavering support and love that Mr. Higgins received from his extended HPA 'ohana enabled him to keep fighting, and after almost a full year of traumatic and painful rehabilitation, Mr. Higgins found the strength to resume his life. Mr. Higgins went back to graduate school in 1997-1998, earning his Masters of Arts in Teaching from Willamette University. He has been teaching English, and coaching cross country and track at the HPA Upper Campus since 1998. Mr. Higgins married in 2 0 0 0 , and presently lives
on campus as a residential faculty parent with his wife Mindy, and his two growing children, Emalia and Koa. One of Mr. Higgins' greatest joys is sharing his lifelong passion for fishing and camping with HPA students. Many past and present students enthusiastically cite fishing on Mr. Higgins's boat, swimming with dolphins in a secluded bay, or camping at his family's Honomalino beach cabin as one of the highlights of their HPA experience. To all of us, Mr. Higgins' life story exemplifies this year's theme of the 64th edition of the Ka Makani yearbook, Continuum. In his 34 year relationship with HPA, Mr. Higgins has undoubtedly given generously of himself. However, he would be the first to admit that the continuous stream of unconditional love, support, and joy he has received from the HPA 'ohana has been an ongoing blessing in his life. We, the staff of the Ka Makani dedicate this yearbook to James Kainalu "Kimo" Higgins in recognition of the continuum of our school's collective past, present, and future. 15

A LEGACY OF OHANA The term tightly knit would not do the class of 2014 justice. Throughout our HPA journey, we have developed into strong individuals, but into an even stronger group. Regardless of cultural background, native languages, hometown, interests or friend groups, each person brings their own flare to our family, making us one of a kind. We command a dominant presence around campus with not only our size of 108, the largest graduating class in HPA history, but also with our spirit. Each member of the class of 2014 has high goals for his or herself, always looking to seize opportunities for personal growth. From the field to the stage and everything in between, we are a collection of leaders who utilize our leadership qualities and yet know when to step back and follow. When the bonds between our family members are at their best, our diverse group has the capacity to accomplish anything. Our individual strengths expiate each other's flaws creating an undeniable sense of 'Ohana. Through the numerous adversities we have experienced in our time at HPA we have come to realize that traditions cannot survive on their own, rather it is the spirit and camaraderie w ithin them that makes them worthwhile. At the end of the day it is the relationships we share with each other that helped us thrive at HPA and w ill be the legacy we w ill look back upon in the future. -Class Representatives '14

Dear Class of 2014, This spring we celebrate your years here on the Upper Campus, acknowledging your place on the continuum of student and alumni life at HPA and celebrating your newly defined role in the Hawaii Prep 'Ohana. The essential and extraordinary element of the class of 2014, however, has always been your confident originality. Though you have been loving little siblings, loyal teammates and good friends to the classes before you, you have honored their traditions and accomplishments without ever imitating. The class of 2014 has dazzled us, your team of class advisors, from your first days here with your fabulous tendency to do things your own way. Within your class, the school has found tremendous intellects, brilliant artists, budding politicians and gifted athletes. The diversity of your strengths is remarkable, and all the more impressive because many of you embody more than one of these talents. The class of 2014 has proven itself to be unafraid of being more than one thing. You are both irreverently funny and powerfully spiritual, both intellectually strong and athletically driven. I remember the enormous, ; spirited group of you arriving at the dawn of your ninth-grade year. As we welcomed you, we understood that the campus would never be quite the same. The young women of your class strode into the English Essentials classroom and jogged down onto the track for practice with immediately apparent strength and style, in defiance of every stereotype about freshman girls. The young men of your class stormed the beach at Mau'umae on your very first class retreat, already joking easily with one another despite your newness to the school, and brought that same irrepressible joy and wit into your classes, out onto the practice fields and up onto the stage as you found your way around your new school environment. Since then, you've have added some extraordinary people to your colorful group, maintaining always the same spirit of exuberant individuality that marked you from the start. We will certainly miss you, class of 2014, but we can't wait to see what happens as you carry that bright light out into the world.
Best of luck, and all our love-- Sarah Whitten Hayslip and the 2014 Advisory Team.

Tokyo, Japan Cross Country | Dean's List | Tennis Theater | Wrestling Through my high school career, I'd like to thank my parents prior to anyone who I came along with. They both helped me and supported me to the best of their abilities such as coming over to Hawaii about every other month, sending me food and snacks, and also loving me deeply. It was hard assimilating to the new environment which I had a lot of difficulties and miscommunications with my peers, even though I spoke English fluently by then. I always remember both my parents being there for support and accepting what I have done and had to go through under any circumstances. However, I would also like to thank my upper classÂ men such as Eigoro Akai and Daniel Han for being such good role models, for making me get out of my old habits, for making me learn new things, which I would never have initiated in the first place. I enjoyed spending time with you guys even though we got caught several times and suffered through the consequences together. I still miss the family-like environment that both of them brought to the community and I wish that I could walk along in their footsteps. Another group of people who I got quite a bit of help from is my friends that are in Japan. We rarely get together, but have a blast when we do meet. I have always depended on you guys when I felt sad or depressed, and always received a blessing from each one of you. I really do thank my other peers and underclassmen for being around me. Although I am as not good of a role model as Eigoro, Daniel, or any other great students in the past. I wish them great luck and I hope they all will have fun until the end where ever that may be. I did enjoy my time in Hawaii, almost making up one third of my lifetime that I spent here. I think I will miss everything I had, but that is how life goes. I really do thank the people who supported me, who were there when I needed them.

This crazy, incredible journey is coming to an end, it feels like it started two minutes ago, when I came for my junior year. Since I landed on this island, time has lost its meaning, my experience at HPA was a collection of surreal and euphoric feelings, moments of genuine growth and inspirational stories. Never in my life have I been as excited as I have been at HPA. Living here has meant more than the simple re-discovery of the joy for academics; it has provided me fantastic energy, passion for life in general and the pleasure of sharing this feeling with other sensational people. Boarding at HPA is more than a life changing experience, it's something special and unique. The energy of this place cannot be described, as well as the humbleness, enthusiasm and kindness of the people that have shared this journey with me. Special thanks to every single person at HPA, even those I couldn't meet, because you make this place better every day. Annalisa & Manfredo: My fantastic parents who made all this possible. India: My lovely sister. I missed you a lot these last two years, but you've always been very affectionate to me! Andrea, Gregorio & Edoardo: My greatest friends since elementary school from Italy.

You're the best mom and role model I could ever ask for! I know I can always come to you with anything and you'll be there. I love you this much! Daddy: I wish you could be here to see me grow up and start my own life. You were my best friend, and not having you around for these past few years has been really hard. I know that you tried your hardest to make things okay and to always be there for me while you were here. I want you to know that I love you and I coudn't even begin to thank you for all of the great experiences 1had with you. Wherever you are now, I know that you're always watching over me and that you're proud. You're being the best father you can be to me without even being here. I love you and miss you more than ever!

I love you 1couldn't have lived with anyone else! Briana, I wish we would've gotten closer earlier in the time we were both at HPA. You helped me through a lot in my junior year, and my senior year too without you even being in the state.

Alaina and Erina, I'm going to miss you so much next year, but I know you'll have a good senior year. Don't replace Melia and me, and come visit me in college!

Tokyo, Japan Kailua, Oahu Manila, Philippines Soccer | Theater There have been a few strong winds that have always been behind my sails. Unstoppable forces that have guided me through the rough and vigorous seas of life. They pushed me to strive to become something more, something greater and something original. Throughout my years in high school, I have had my glorious highs, and my tremendous lows. My experiences in high school have changed me, and my thoughts in ways I never would imagine. The journey of high school was truly finding out who I was. Little did I know I may have celebrated the highs of my school but it was really the lows that made me who I am. Now, it wasn’t easy and I couldn’t have done it alone but let me tell you, it was worth it. Mom: I’d like to thank my mom, the most hard working and encouraging person I could ever ask god for. She was always behind me, loving me unconditionally through my highs and my lows. As a single parent, she volunteered to take the role as both father and mother but still had to keep up with a rigorous job that put me in the position that i’m even in today. Mom, there are no words really to describe how much you mean to me and how much I look up to you. Your words of encouragement and wisdom will stay with me for years to come. I honor you. I love you dearly. And I thank you for your life dedication to me. I want you to be the proud parent you deserve to be. Love, your son. Andrew Pommersheim: I never would’ve thought I would meet such a like minded person as you. You’ve been there for me throughout adversity and hard times in Japan. We gravitate towards each other in an unexplainable way that I can only sum up as ‘True Friendship.” Looking back at pictures before and during our first years in high school, it’s amazing to see how we’ve both grown so much. If there is one thing I could ever ask you to do in life, it would be to stay confident in yourself and content in life. The faster you learn how to do those two difficult tasks, the greater life could be for you. I know we're still young so try not to sweat over the small things in life and really enjoy our youth as it is. Time is quickly passing us by but with you, I feel like I have all the time in the world. Thank you, for being my best friend.

I truly value my friends and will never have "enough'1or too many. My beloved dog (Oreo): Always there to greet me and even hug me when I come through the door, Oreo gives me so much love.

We’ve had a million adventures together and I hope we have a million more. You’re the best person, you’re a wonderful friend, and you have been and always will be the greatest mom. Dad: I feel like our relationship now will be exactly the same in twenty years.

Erika: I write your name and I start laughing, because how could I ever sum up our friendship in an acknowledgement? I truly believe that anyone else who will inevitably come into my life will never compare to your immeasurable greatness. I want to maraud the world with you and laugh about everything we see. I want to cook food with you that will end up in failure, but at least we tried. I want to go to an IHOP with you at three in the morning for pancakes (because we failed at making them ourselves) with questionable flavors of syrup and write until we actually have to do something productive with the day. My world would never be the same without you in it. You’ve saved my life more than once, you inspire me every day, and I’m a better person because of you. Maybe this is the end of high school, but it’s the beginning of our lives. I can’t wait to stumble through it with you.

Waimea, Hawai'i Football | S.A.D.D. Club | Track Dad: I don’t know where to start, with track? The sport I was never able to avoid shin-splints “from hell” in, but always had you to rely on. You put more effort into my track seasons than I did. You were a coach, my personal mentor, athletic trainer, comic relief, and someone who’s main purpose in life was to love people. I thank you so incredibly much. I love you ‘pops’. Mom: The love and affection you have shown me is overwhelming. I can tell you anything and can expect back only understanding and love. You have really carried me through my life. I love you so incredibly much and I’m going to miss you. Billy: You have been such an inspiring role model to look up to. You paved the way for me in high school and that’s probably what got me through. You also were an amazing, loving brother. You looked out for me and despite our arguments you always took the higher road and let me win. Love you bro and I hope to see a lot more of you during college. Ana: You’re the best little sister that anyone could have. I know everyone says that, but it’s for real when I say it. You’re going to have a great high school career and I can’t wait to see how well you do in track. Love you so much and glad that I spent a year with you in school. The Boys: I’m definitely going to miss you guys. You know who you are. From “gator snatchers,” to all our camping trips, and of course to the infamous one liners of, “eyy what are you gonna remember?”*You guys are more than friends, you’re brothers, and there’s no one I'd rather be related to. I wish all of you luck in college. Let’s do this!

Remember when it all started with the three musketeers freshmen year, but then we lost one next year. We had sophomore year full of failures, you remember what they were. On the other hand, junior year was full of “great success” (read it in Borat’s voice) except for that trip at the end of the year... I am happy you were able to come back so that we can finish this year together. Claudius: Meine Kameraden, remember how it all started with an awkward handshake back in 7th grade in math class? It was great to know that there was someone else similar to where I was coming from. Thanks dude for all the great years. Piercy family: Thank you so much for being like my family over these years. You guys have really helped me through all of the middle school struggles (well, you caused one of them when you made all the boarders eat lots and lots of salad for lunch).

Waimea, Hawai'i Glenwood Springs, Colorado Archery Founder |Book Club Co-Vice President | Ceramics |Stage Hand High school is a minefield of drama, grades and puberty, but it isn't so bad if you're surrounded by people who make it worthwhile. I wouldn't have made it this far if it wasn't for my friends and family. Here's thanks to my parents, who-deserve immeasurable credit for their unwavering support and sense of humor. To my dad who taught me how to be driven and focused on the farthest of goals and to my mom who taught me to be passionate in everything I do. Of course I have to thank my sister, who credited herself with making sure I wasn't too weird. I have to thank my small flock of co-conspirators; Allex, Scott, Kristiana, Hannah, Miel and everyone else who has found a seat at our crowded little lunch table. You guys have made school interesting, funny and have made the constant stress bearable knowing I certainly wasn't alone. And of course to Ana whom with I've shared innumerable cups of coffee and 2 am's dedicated to wild dreams of the future. Without you, my broski, I never would have made it through high school, but of all the countless things I could thank you for I'm mo^t thankful to the coffee we will drink together, to the IHOP pancakes we will eat for dinner and the books we will inspire in each other. Of all the days, movies, books, hopes and moments we've shared Ana, I thank you for the things we will share! And to everyone else who's shared this campus with me: Live long and prosper.

Squaw Valley, California Waimea, Hawai'i Basketball | Football In life you only have so many unique opportunities. For the last three years I have been on a journey that has taken me to a school I never thought I would have gone to. This school has taught me many things and showed me things the rest of the world never gets to see. I also ended up going to school with some of the best friends I have ever made. Justin, David, Kellen and Derek: You guys have been awesome friends and the stuff we have done together I will not forget for a long time. I would also like to thank the Westervelts and Phams for letting me stay in their homes during the weekends and breaks. The kindness you showed to me I will certainly not forget. For all of my friends and family at home, I would also like to say thank you for supporting me when I left home. Even though this is my senior year, this journey is not coming to a close but it is still going. I did not start this journey because it was easy, but because it was hard. I wanted to see a new world and meet people I would have never met in a normal high school. In the end, I have taken part in an experience that very few teenagers get to participate in, and I am blessed to been able to see it through.

I can’t thank you guys enough for all the time, money, and love you’ve invested in me. You guys have built a steady foundation for us and I’m glad that you guys raised us the way you did. Dad, thank you for always making amazing meals, giving me positive talks, helping with all my challenging assignments, and being your weird self. Mom, Thank you for being my coach, best friend, and mom in one. Thank you for working several jobs just so your kids can go to private schools, doing most of the chores at home, and always putting us before yourself. You’re an angel sent from above and I’m proud to call you my mama. I love you, Mom and Dad. Tehane & Teva: Tehane, you’ve grown to be a beautiful, intelligent, young woman that has so much to offer. There’s no doubt that you're my best friend. We’ve been through it all with each other and there’s no other person I would have chose to go through it with. Thank you for always listening to my problems, giving me advice, and being my workout buddy. I get depressed thinking about next year and how we’re going to be separated. I love you sissy.

Jake & Colin: Thanks for the screaming Madden matches, the hours of laughing, and always being there when I needed a pick me up. You guys are the best and I hope to see you soon. Jess, Maddie, Reyn & Holly: I can’t really put all that I have to say about you girls in a paragraph. So I’ll just say you’ve kept me great company, you’re some of the funniest people I know, and keep doing what you’re doing. I love you all. The Teachers of HPA: You’re all great, each and every one of you. You’ve become more than just mentors and coaches, you’ve become my friends and my idols. You’ve taught me more than I could’ve ever imagined and opened up so many opportunities for me. Thank you for all that you’ve done. I’ve become close to many of you and I hope to keep in touch later on in life.

ULRICH Waimea, Hawai'i Cross Country | SLAC | Track 13 Years at HPA Mom & Dad: Words cannot describe how grateful I am for everything you've done for me over the past eighteen years. I couldn't have asked for more loving, supportive and lively parents. I love you two more than anything. Melanie & Brittany: Growing up wouldn't have been the same without you two as my role models and best friends. We've shared so many laughs and great times together and I've always been able to look up to both of you. Kai: Thank you for all the happiness and love you've brought me the last couple years. Friends: You've given life to my years here at HPA and have always kept me laughing. It'll be hard to go on our separate ways after all the times we've spent together but you all have such good hearts and I know you'll do great things.

Kona, Hawai'i Cross Country | Soccer | Track Mom: I know we’ve had our ups and downs but I know that you always want what’s best for me. Thank you for sacrificing so much of your time for me, I know it isn’t easy. Try not to worry too much about me as I go off in the big, bad world. I love you. Dad: Even though I’m just the “spare,” I know you always have my best interests at heart. I appreciate you more than I say and I hope you know that. With love, respect and admiration...also, 3 MENTAL!!!! Hannah: You've been my best friend since you were born although, realistically, you're more like my sister. Somehow, through all the crazy times in Oahu and around the world, we've manage to not kill each other! It'll be an adventure, when we go out into the real world but I know we'll always have each others backs. Scott: Don't be so busy saving the world you forget about me. Allex: It seems so weird that we've only been friends for five years. You've been crazy with me and you've also survived the giant chapters of the AP Bio textbook with me. If that is not true friendship, I don't know what is. Keli and Nora: You guys have been such a presence in my life. We've been friends since kindergarten and have danced millions of dance steps together. Don't stop being the crazy and wonderful people you are. The Lunch Table Cohorts: I'm so sorry I couldn’t write to each and every one of you, if I did I could publish a book with all my recollections! You guys have been my support system for these past four years and I honestly don't think I could've survived high school without you. I've had so much fun with you and shared so many laughs. You've also been a shoulder to cry on, but lets not think about that! I know you will go far in life, but hopefully not too far away from me.

VERHULSDONK Kailua-Kona, Hawai'i Basketball | Softball | Volleyball Mom & Dad: First off, you guys are the best! Thank you for paying for all my schooling and expenses. For always putting in so much of your time towards my volleyball career, if it weren’t for you I wouldn’t be where I stand today. You both are really hard working parents and I really do appreciate everything you did for me. This year it’s only been me at home so we got really close. It will be really hard to leave the nest for college, but I think we can get through it. Well, can’t wait for the day I can call myself a high school graduate. I love you guys with all my heart! Ziona & Kelii: Hmm... where have the years gone? I can still remember when Li’i and I would go up to HPA when Ziona had practice and sit on the bleachers watching them practice always wanting to play, but we ended up just getting bored and would sit back and play our gameboys. Well this year has been different because both of you were gone! I was the only child home and when I would get bored and lonely we would always face time and just talk about our life and school. You two were the role models for me my whole life, I’ve always been looking up to you guys. Well just want to say I love you guys and can’t wait till the summer. The Girls (Tiana, Tehane, Veronica, T.T, Gabbie & Kawena): Well I just want to thank you guys for possibly being the best!

I just want you guys to know that I love you! And you’ll all be missed. Let’s make this year simply the best! Sione: Kitty!! You are the big brother I never had. Always having my back and putting a smile on my face every time I see you. You didn’t really hang out with me during the “Kealakehe days,” but I am glad we both ended up here at HPA. I’m going to miss bossing you around and telling you to do your homework every second of the day! Well, let’s make this year the best! I’m going to miss my body guard...

Nothing makes me feel better than a hug from you. You have made growing up the best experience. Thank you for all the love you have given me. Mom, I would never have come so far without you. You push me harder than anyone else, and for that I am so grateful. You work so hard for this family and Iâ€™m sorry we donâ€™t give you more appreciation, because you really deserve it. Mom, you are the strongest person I know and I have and will always look up to you and love you unconditionally. David: I know I'm always super mean to you, but I don't really mean it.

For 65 years, the essential mission of The Hawai'i Preparatory Academy has been to provide a rigorous college preparatory environment to its students. W hile our dynamic academic program continues to be our foundation, HPA also values and perpetuates a lively, involved, and diverse student body, as well as an after school program that provides opportunities for student athletes and artists to excel and achieve. As students, we ultimately strive to strike a balance and appreciation between these three disciplines throughout our four years at the Upper School. The continuation of the annual Parents Weekend and Pumpkin Patch kept a familiar feeling of 'ohana on campus that resinated throughout the fall season. The Juniors' Fall Ball "Enchanted Autumn" kept the custom of holding a major dance in the fall semester, while adding their own flare by donating all proceeds to the American Red Cross to support typhoon relief in the Philippines. Along the lines of great HPA traditions, the Ka Makani Players presented their annual musical. This year's production was a rendition of 42nd Street, which Was ironically, a musical about a musical. Last but not least, this year brought about the revival of HPA traditions from the past. The Adventure Club regrouped for the first time since the early 90's, hiking and camping around the island. The fall sports season was among the most successful seasons ever, finishing with three BIIF titles and two state runner ups. Blending the new with the old, combining tradition with adventure, HPA continues to present a plethora of opportunity to each and every student that calls this special campus and community home.

Bringing back the tradition of the Adventure Club enables students to discover Hawai'i through a series of unique adventures with our dedicated faculty. Along with the traditions that define the heart of our school, we continue to create new traditions that we hope will perpetuate the uniqueness of our student body. HPA's blend of international, domestic, and local students is unparalleled in the state of Hawai'i, and our unique campus serves as a microcosm of the world, where cultures merge together and true diversity exists.

For the 22nd time, the tradition of Parents Weekend carried on. Starting on Thursday, October 17th, hundreds of parents from all over the world gathered to attend the weekend festivities with their children to discover more about the environment at Hawaii Preparatory Academy. Parents Weekend activities continued on Friday, October 18th, with parent faculty conferences at the Lower, Middle, and Upper Schools. Girls Volleyball, Girls Cross Country and Boys Cross Country won BIIF titles that Saturday along with the Football team's achievement of advancing to the BIIF finals in an exiting game against Kamehameha. Parents weekend concluded with the annual Hawaii Preparatory Academy Pumpkin Patch on October 20th. The tradition started in the early 1990’s with a new idea for fundraising. Created and originally organized by Candace Peterson, Pumpkin Patch has become an integral part in fundraising for the school. This year Pumpkin Patch was an incredibly successful event with the Class of 2014 breaking the record for the amount of money raised by one class through the traditional senior service donations at the silent auction and the Haunted House. Sophomore, Christian Watanabe, mentioned his “favorite part of the Haunted House was when the scary doctor popped out of a dark corner with a real chain saw!” Overall, Parents Weekend and Pumpkin Patch continues to be one of the largest and most exciting traditions of the school. It was a great weekend to be a Ka Makani! 139

Anna’s dorm is filled with 73 girls from around the world. This year was full of change, from the dorm renovations to new hall parents. Aunty Arati made a big commitment to becoming our new dorm head, bringing with her new energy that filled the dorm, along with the Schorn family who moved in and made everyone on their hall feel welcome. Anna’s is unique in that it’s the only dorm that’s all girls, making things harder at times but also allowing for the strongest friendships to form. There are always things going on no matter what day of the week it is, from movie nights on the weekends to
making study hall snacks in the commons. The halls this year are separated by grades, freshmen live in the Schorn’s hall, above in Aranita’s hall are the sophomores, Aunty Arati has a hall filled with juniors, and Mrs. T’s hall is mixed with upperclassmen. The prefects in the dorm set the example and are always there to talk to the younger girls with any problem they are facing. Anna's dorm prepares you for any future obstacle. All in all, living in Anna’s dorm is a continuous adventure where you make lifetime friends.
Always changing, always in motion
Mrs. Aranita's Hall
Ms. T's Hall
Auntie Arati's Hall
Mrs. Aranita's hall is the quiet, more reserved hall mixed with sophomores and juniors. They're always studying, and doing the best they can to help out in the dorm. Anytime you need a helping hand from a student, Aranita's hall is the place to go.
Mrs. T's hall is a mixing pot of sophomores all the way to seniors. These girls are always in each others rooms and always having fun. The girls on this hall know how to get around doing their dorm duties to be able to do more enjoyable things.
The Schorn's Hall is full of bubbly new freshmen. They bring excitement and joy to the dorm. Havingall the freshmen in one hall is a new tradition this year that Auntie Arati brought back from her days in the dorm. There is never a dull moment on the freshmen hall.
Auntie Arati's hall has the excited sophomores and one eighth grader. These girls are always ready for an adventure. Being on Auntie Arati's hall means you need to have room for more food all the time. Anytime you need a nighttime snack, her hall is the place to go.

Combining Cultures Robertson Dormitory "Our dorm is like a family. We have fu n together no matter what, we're always therefor each other."
Mr. Braithwaite & Mrs. Johnson
Robertson’s dorm is one of a kind. Being the only co-ed dorm makes Robertson’s a diverse place to live. Nights in the commons can be a quiet, relaxing place to study or a noisy s’more making gathering. The boarders in Robertson's work together to create a sense of comfort throughout the dorm where everyone is accepted and everyone gets along. Weekends are filled with boarders from all dorms who come to Robertson’s as a place to relax with friends and enjoy time together. The arrival of new boarders in Robertson’s this year has allowed for new friendships to grow and put a new twist on hall wars. Being a closeknit family gives our boarders the willingness to help and grow from each other. The coziness of the dorm makes it possible for everyone to bond together whether it’s over a toasty campfire or cheesy quesadilla nights. Representing the
upper boy’s hall is Mr. Ford who brought a new tradition to Robertson’s of midnight movie premieres in KailuaKona. On the lower boy’s hall is Mr. McKenna, who is always available for homework help or advice. Lastly, on the girl’s hall is Mrs. Johnson and Mr. Braithwaite who are always up for ice cream nights in their apartment and can always be depended on for selling candy on their duty nights. Robertson's beach dinners have become one of the most enjoyable events that our dorm leaders have organized over the years. Every person who makes up Robertson's dorm has something different to offer, making Robertson's a great place to live.

Baothcas Hartwell Dormitory is home to a diverse group of young men who take the idea of brotherhood very seriously. While residents might have differences of opinions on a number of issues (including, but certainly not limited to) sports, girls, politics, and music, at the end of the day there is certainly a feeling that everyone has each others backs, no matter what. Hartwell's is fearlessly led by Dr. Ravaglia, with a stellar crew of supporting staff that includes Mr. Higgins, Mr. Huntington, Mr. Jarvill, Mr. Kalawaianui, Mr. O'Leary, and Mr. Wawner. This cohort of dorm parents provide guidance and counsel to the young men of Hartwell, and in return there is a level of respect and honor between everyone that keeps the dorm afloat, even in the toughest of times. While the young men of Hartwell's might struggle to get to class on time, keep their demerits below 4, be in dress code, keep their room cleans, or go to bed after lights out at 10:30, they are learning valuable life skills everyday; skills that will help them become independent and responsible citizens upon graduation.

The story of the Boys Cross Country 2013 epic season began with summer camp. Veterans and upstarts were asked immediately after summer to push their bodies beyond their limits. The team absorbed wisdom from their dedicated coaches, Lupe Diaz and Kimo Higgins. Whether it was "Busâ€? day, running 10 timed laps around the track, or going out to Mana road for an 8 mile run, the team knew that they had to push themselves and each other in order to achieve the results they were looking for. Running hundreds of miles over the season, the HPA Boys Cross Country team knew that this year was going to be a game changer. The spirit of the team was embodied in the likes of junior Keisuke Anzai. At the end of every brutal three-mile race he gave a hand of congratulations to each
runner as they crossed the red finish line. "I do it to congratulate the other runners." Keisuke says. "In other sports you usually shake hands and say 'good job' to the other players. I like to do that for this sport because everyone works so hard." The Boys finished their season with an impressive Division I BIIF championship, their first BIIF title in almost 10 years and their first title since advancing into the Division I Category. Also, in the BIIF open race, junior Davy Ragland and freshman Keli'i Van Kirk finished first and second overall, proving their potential for the future of the program. Both the Open and Varsity teams have set the tone for Cross Country at HPA for years to come, and have shown that an underdog team can prevail when grit, teamwork and determination all come together.

E v e ry year Coach Franklin and Coach Hayslip choose a different theme for the Girl’s Cross Country team. This form of inspiration is familiar to most athletes but our themes are a little different. We often find inspiration through poetry and this year was no different. Sections of Walt Whitman’s “Leaves of Grass” provided inspiration this season. Just as Whitman found meaning through poetry, thirty-seven girls donned running shoes every day and found meaning by pushing beyond their limits. From beautiful long runs on Mana Road and Mud Lane to days filled with four hundred meter repeats and the infamous Taj sprints, they chose to participate in a sport that demands total commitment. All that hard work paid off. Perhaps it is fitting that, as the biggest Cross Country team in HPA history, this team was, arguably, the most successful. In the BIIF Championship race, HPA’s varsity, led by Senior Captains Kelly Ulrich, Mariah Haight, Veronica Ladwig and Kristiana Van Pernis, took home the team title with Kristiana winning the individual conference title. Moreover, all seven varsity runners placed in the top ten. In the open race, HPA runners took the first ten places and comprised sixteen of the top twenty runners with senior Melia Cavedoni placing first. At the State Championship race on Kauai, the varsity girls placed second overall, running faster together than schools three times the size of HPA. While our team is inspired by different themes each year, we certainly strive for success, and our ultimate goals remain the same every season. Those goals are to challenge ourselves, carry ourselves with humility and to experience joy. Our sport is challenging and there are numerous times during practices and races where it is tempting to slow your pace or to settle for the place you’re in. Throughout the season each girl faced those challenges head on and found herself to be strong enough to conquer them. Daily, as we pushed against the limits of what we thought we could do, we were reminded of our goal of humility and appreciating

what our bodies are capable of. Finally, we experienced joy. While Cross Country is not a sport associated with joy, few would believe that if they saw our team. Coaches of other teams often commented that we looked like we were having more fun than other teams
during our races. Perhaps it was the friendship, the excitement of doing things you thought weren’t possible, or simply the sheer joy o f ; running fast, but each of us, in our own way, found joy in lacing up our shoes and heading out for a run. - Kristiana Van Pernis '14

Ka Makani Football
B o b b y E b m jpawwmg^We ]ba$ field, leaving a trail of. C turt behSftd l$m;_
When people think of Ka Makani football, words such as character, passion and strength come to mind, but the word brotherhood epitomizes this teaman Joining the Ka Makani football A team is not just joining a sport J it is committing to a family. Members of Ka Makani football are accountable for each other on and off the field. Football is embedded into Ka Makani tradition. Being a big contender for BIIF titles since 1962, Ka Makani football has won numerous BIIF championships. However, after four years of not claiming a BIIF title, the Ka Makani football team was hungry to reclaim the Island crown. Coach Hayslip pushes his team to burst through set expectations. As he says, “Any team can be a great team, but it takes heart and brotherhood to be a Ka Makani.” This exemplifies the players’ mentality. Every year the small team faces squads double their size, but Ka Makani always bring their game. In the classroom or&n the field, the boys are alvyays motivated to excel.
After finishing the regular season with an impressive record, HPA started the playoff! with a confident attitude. Facing Kamehameh^n the first round at home, the heart of Ka Makani iprexMgfl in the second half. After peingpeftnd all game, HPA steppeoH up in the fourth quarter. Behind by ten points with eight minutes left. Ka Makani drove the ball. The linemen blocked as Bobby Lum broke tackles to lead to an HPA touchdown, putting them back into the game. On kickoff a miracle occurred; Alex Brost booted the ball and it bounced off a Kamehameha player, fallingynto Ka Makani nands! ContinSing their comeback, HPA once again drove down the field to score another touchdown and secure the win. The season ended on a high at home but unfortunately HPA was unable to take hold of the championship, despite a great game against Konawaena. This band of brothers will live on, the players on the Ka Makani football team will be remembered for their virtuous passion and heart for the game.

H P A Kct M c ik a n i 11/c ih in c 17oileybciLL With practices beginning as early as May, players came in with no expectations, just a promise to have fun and participate in the great game of volleyball. This early commitment was a foreshadow to how successful they would be throughout their season. With only four club players, the Ka Makani Wahine Volleyball team appeared to be underdogs, but their strengths were found in what could not be seen. Playing by the motto “all in all the time,” they constantly worked on improving their mental toughness by knowing that talent was not going to be enough to get what they wanted. Through the guidance of Coach Sharon Peterson, they worked to master both the physical and mental aspects of the game. Facing fierce competition didn’t faze them. Their ability to prepare, focus and persevere through adversity separated them from their competition and enabled them to reach new heights, defeating rival Konawaena in a nail-biting 5 sets to become BIIF Division II Champions and playing three tough games against the states elite to become state finalists for the first time in HPA history. To these girls volleyball is not just a game, it’s a lifestyle. Coaches Award: Courtney Barro-Kilmede Most Improved: Anna Juan Most Valuable: Tiana Reynolds Most Outstanding: Gabrielle Ewing 158

A SENSE OF PURPOSE •
M y goodness, what a season. Coming off an incredibly strong fall season, for sports, theater, and academics alike, it seemed hard to top what the fall season accomplished. Not to belittle success, but the winter season was one that w ill be remembered for the ages. Led by incredibly strong athletic performances, both girls soccer and boys basketbal I teams brought home HHSAA state titles. Both titles, being the first team sports championships in HPA history. On the stage, an incredible presentation of "Flowers for Algernon" brought both smiles and tears to our faces. Boys soccer won BIIFs for the first time since 2009, and the girls soccer run to the state title began with their fifth BIIF title in a row. Girls swimming and diving won a BIIF title as well, helping to wrap up a strong season at HPA. A sense of purpose w ithin our school is what we as students strove to discover. In and out of the classroom we were able to strive to better ourselves and our community in order to truly discover who we were. That is an essential piece of the HPA experience; to grow and develop into a successful and strong young adult. Watching each HPA student simply do what they are passionate about truly demonstrates this school's ability to produce happy, intelligent, and well balanced people. The hardest time to find your place in the world might be under the bright lights, in front of the entire state, working to accomplish your highest goal. Congratulations to both girls soccer and boys basketball for accomplishing a truly special milestone in HPA history, and for demonstrating grace, under pressure. The lights may be bright, but they cannot phase us. M y goodness, what a season.

FINAL EXAM WEEK AT HAWAII PREP
Carrying chairs out of the classroom, echoed coughing throughout the gym, scribbling pencils, a teacher saying “Five minutes left, five minutes.” These are the sounds of finals week. A time of proving to your teachers what you have learned over the semester in the duration of a two hour test. Over the course of the week, students take every opportunity to review inside the classrooms and over the weekend. Whether they use flashcards, posterboards or verbal repetition, the students of HPA are busily rehearsing the past semester's material. Finals week allows students to be unified by forming study groups and learning more from each other. Finals week demonstrates the teamwork that is taught at HPA and shows great collaboration among peers. Finals week is also about students and teachers helping and benefiting from each other. To allow students to study as much as possible, teachers, along with administrators and staff clean tables and wash dishes in the lunchroom throughout finals week. Teachers are also there for their students, making themselves available during their free time, which can include early morning study sessions, or late night reviews in the dorms. Their cooperation and aid in doing this is much appreciated by the students of HPA during this busy time. Several teachers this year also made pancakes outside of classrooms giving students a break from the diligent studying periods. The “social event of the season” or the “Art Show," was also held in the art building during finals week, giving students a break from the relentless pressure of preparing. Students mingled, ate light snacks, and took in all of the excellent work produced by their classmates. Finals week is said to either make or break students but in the end, with a good work ethic and being there for your fellow classmates, finals week can be quite manageable. It has been a tradition of HPA and represents the idea of continuum of students' hard work and proving to their teachers what they have learned over the course of a semester.

A Culmination of International Day 2 0 14 Every year, the HPA community anticipates the arrival of International Day, a unique tradition on our campus since 1999. Day students and boarders alike get to celebrate and enjoy the wide range of cultural and ethnic backgrounds that exist on our international campus. Groups of eager students who are prideful about their respective country get together to create interesting workshops, cook amazingly tasty food, and participate in a yearly talent show that is not to be missed. The countries represented in this yearâ€™s celebration included China, Canada, Korea, Germany, Taiwan, Kazakhstan, Mexico, Alaska, Japan, Hawaii, and Vietnam. International day is known for combining traditional culture with a contemporary vibe, carrying on the tradition of each countryâ€™s culture and the culture of international day itself.

FLOWERS FOR ALGERNON he rising stars of the Ka Makani reatre shouldered an enormous isk with their production of David logers’ science fiction play, lowers for Algernon. Set in New hgland in the 1960s, the play letails the life of a mentally starded man, Charlie Gordon Julian Sandulli), and his journey rough a brain operation under loctors Strauss (Curtis McMackin) nd Nemur (Churchill Crean) that xponentially increases his itelligence and then later causes to regress at the same rapid rate.
Told in two acts at constantly varying levels of intelligence, Charlie’s heartbreaking story explores themes of one’s conflicting past, the continual battle of emotion and intelligence, and the perpetual mistreatment of disabled people in modern society. In the presence of drama teacher Marina Tichostky’s experienced direction and brightlycolored floral shirts lay a tear jerking production that kept the audience at the edge of their seats throughout its three performances.

Two years in a row tip boys basketball team came up short in the State Championship. They won back-to-back BIIF charmipnships, wrapping up the two most successful HPA boys basketball teams ever. That’s a lot to live Up too. Duripg the jjmseason the boyHr lost four of eight games. It wasn’t looking too bright, but then again the 2012-2013 team had the same record going into the season and may ended up third in the state. The theme for the year, Ubuntu, truly brought out the emphasis of “We” before “I.” Ubuntu, which means “I am because we are,” was essential to the succ0s§;,,of‘tbjs year’s team. After their s u jn a r p re ^ p ^ r) the team took a rest for®Winter break, and returned more realy than ever. The first game of g ie season was | against Hilo, to Whom they won by j only a few fifiints during a preseasorrtourfiament. They drovei to Hilo, an^jetyfned victors; that was only the beginning. The next week they opened their home court to Pahoa—whgjfaey beat the year before in the BllFl;hampionship game—and demolished them, making a statement . Over the next month, the HPA home crowd, led by Eugene Kao, stayed undefeated in the regular season. As well as bringing a powerful home crowd to intimidate thd|r opponents, the Ka Makani boys dominated on the

Makani B a s k e t b a ll road. Over twelve regular season games, HPA went undefeated finishing .the b e ^ f lH la r season in HPA history.

Now, to advance to the state ’ championships, they had to play a play-in game at home the monday after the loss. The gatfie was at 4 p.m. and it seemed that the horrp crowd might be too busy to cheer on tneir Kanis. With that in mind, many coaches canceled their practices, forma dinner was canceled, and virtually the entire school ^ ^ w e d up to the game.

Perpetuating Tradition HPA Paddling ÂŁi short season and a selective amount of palfdlers, the HPA paddling team was aoie to have a successful season. In the beginning, many new athletes came out for the first time to see if they would enjoy paddling and to get a feel for the sport. For the most part, these athletes felt the immediate rush and newfound love for the sport, joined the team, and tried their best every day to get better. This young team showed great progress with each practice and every race, always displaying hard work and dedication. The paddling season is made up of four meets known as regattas. At these competitions, the team unloads and rigs the canoe, gets in the boat to warm up and lines up between the flags to start off the race.
With new strategies and new techniques put into each practice, the coaches and athletes saw their potential grow each day. In the regattas, the paddlers put all they had into each half mile race and tried their best with the limited amount of experience they had. In the regattas and in the BIIF races

these paddlers pushed themselves, showing that hard work pays off as they always qualified for the final race. Each paddler and crew achieved their goals. This season proved that the future of this program is bright. Every year, the varsity paddling team has a large number of new athletes with varying experience levels who are eager to learn. These young paddlers improved immensely over the season and are excited to continue with the sport. For the veterans, the paddling season was a long time coming. Coaches Mesepa Tanoai and Seth Koppes were very hopeful for the 2013-2014 season. The varsity team only got four chances to prove themselves before the Big Island championship race, which only adds stress and pressure. Even with the limited amount of experience, the strong dedication shown by the athletes made it possible for the varsity team to qualify for the final race in the BIIF championship.

Ka Makani Boys Soccer After a successful 2013 season* the Ka Makani Boys soccer team had big shoes to fill in 2014. With a young team and an optimistic heart, Goach Richard Braithwaite was in search of capturing his first BIIF title. The season had a somber start as the boys tied 1-1 in a tough game against Kamehameha. Winning the next few games lifted the spirit and restored the confidence of the team, but they knew that the most difficult part of the season was still to come. The Ka Makani boys had to play six tough opponents in a row, starting with the most daunting, Kealakehe. The boys fought hard, but came up short 4-2 to the Waveriders. After loosing the next two games against Christian Liberty Academy and Konawaena, the boys were looking for a way to bounce back. Competing against Waiakea gave them the perfect opportunity to do so. The win against Waiakea gave the team the momentum they needed to outlast Parker and Hilo. For their last regular season game, The Ka Makani boys had to face their crossÂ town rival, Honoka'a. The boys gave it their all, but were unable to put the ball in the net, losing 2-0. Moving into the playoffs, the boys knew that it would take a great^ amount of grit to gain a BIIF title. The team quickly* knocked off Ka'u in the first round and was ready to face Honoka'a for a rematch in the semi-final round. After 100 minutes of play due to two overtime periods, the game was still tied at 1-1. With penalty shootouts ahead, Ka Makani confidence rose. Winning on the seventh * penalty kick, Ka Makani boys soccer was headed to the BIIF finals against Christian Liberty Academy (CLA), a team that beat HPA 6-2 in the regular season. With the momentum in their favor and determination in their hearts, HPA was ready to capture the gold, which came from an outstanding goal by Justin Perry. A 1-0 win against CLA brought home the BIIF title and a berth in the state tournament. At states, a tough loss to Mid-Pacific Institute in the semi-finals sent the boys to the third place game, but another win against CLA ended the season on a high. As a whole, Ka Makani pride was exemplified in the 2014 season. The Ka Makani boys had a very successful season and look forward to their young team continuing their success.

For the first time in HPA’s history, the girl’s soccer team brought home a team state title. The girls finished the season with an impressive record, outscoring their opponents 28-1. As well as making history, the Kanis' presence dominated the HHSAA All-Tournament team. This will forever be a season to remember.

Strive for Greatness T
his year’s swimming and diving season was full of ambition. Swimmers and divers were happy to welcome a lot of new members that worked hard and were in search of achieving greatness. It took plenty of adjustment to be able to work cohesively with the rest of the team, but the newbies really caught on. Head coach Mr. Noetzel challenged the team to push themselves and follow the “master plan.11 -Set yourself small goals as a step to success. -Find your strength and keep pushing forward. -Take daily risks and evaluate your progress. Coach Noetzel has been coaching at HPA for over 22 years, and has provided an environment that keeps the team moving forward physically and mentally. Noetzel motivated the team during practice with the phrase "You are not dinosaurs, your body will keep
moving and your muscles will grow stronger." The motivation definitely fell onto fertile soil: The swimmers had an overall 90% improvement rate in speed at their fifth meet. Mr. Noetzel was not the only coach that motivated the swimmers with inexhaustible patience and passion. Mrs. Dahlquist, Mr. McKenna, Mrs. Kassis, Coach Lauren and Coach Harry led the team through a great season. The traditional Starbucks stop before every meet (that are taken frightfully serious by many athletes) are seen as a mere ceremonial ritual promising victory and success for everyone. Although a third of the sports season falls during winter break, the swimmers did not stop practicing hard and participating in competitions on island throughout the break. The Ka Makani's are also proud to include a small number of talented divers on the team. For the third year in a row, three HPA divers qualified for the State’s HHSAA Championship. “It
was fun to see all the different divers of Hawaii from all the other islands and compete against many students from the State," diver Lawson Wilson recounted. More success was to come. For the first time in five years, HPA won their own invitational home meet by one point. The team was also happy to learn that eight swimmers had qualified for the annual state championship. These swimmers have been especially hard working and were successful in earning a time at the state championship level. They were rewarded by a trip to Hilo to challenge the best high school swimmers in Hawaii. All in all, the Ka Makani Swimming and Diving team have grown closer together throughout the long and grueling season, helping each other overcome physical and mental burdens, while creating bonds of friendship that will last forever. The hard work and ambition have helped create a strong, confident team that is not afraid of stepping up to the next level year after year.

K a M a k a n i W r e s tlin g The Ka Makani wrestling team has come out on top this season. With new leadership from rising seniors, the team was stronger and more motivated than ever. All of the exhaustion, sweat and injuries have paid off for this determined group of athletes. New wrestlers also added a fresh twist for the competitive season. Coaches PK and Ford have put in many additional hours to making this season very successful. Though the practices and matches are challenging, the wrestlers always find motivation during match time, allowing them to achieve their full potential. Senior captains Madison Inman and Cannon Greco-Hiranaka have guided the team throughout all wrestling matches, including all BIIF meets held on the weekends, and the HHSAA state championship held in Honolulu.

Their extra efforts this season have strengthened the team's leadership, dedication and unity. This year's BIIF championship tournament was held at Ke'au High School.

o the Class of 2014: \loha and congratulations to the Class of 2014 on a long and successful ride through the "HPA experience” .. whether it was for one year or thirteen years. Hawaii Prep is a special place and working with Ka Makani Athletics has hopefully given you many lasting ewards. All of your fellow student/athletes are unique and special and all of your coaches truly understand vhat high school athletics is all about. This year marks a first for Hawaii Prep as we earn State Championships in Girls Soccer and Boys 3asketball. “WE ... before me” and “Ubuntu” were good messages to follow. Great job by both teams. "There is no continuum for success. Focus on the progress, not the results." - Nick Saban (University of Alabama football coach) Thank you for all of your hard work, energy, sportsmanship, and determination to jet better each day. 3ood luck and keep smiling! Stephen L. Perry athletic Director
M ost students quickly realize that H PA represents unique learning opportunities from faculty m em bers who are deeply dedicated to the art o f teaching.

A TRADITION OF EXCELLENCE HPA's faculty members are Continuum personified. On the day we arrived on campus - perhaps acting cool . . . but in truth a bit nervous, lost, and confused . . . they were our guides. As we have grown in confidence and maturity, they have grown in titles: teacher, mentor, advocate, counselor, confidant, coach, activities leader, bus driver, dorm parent, class leader, advisor, friend . . . HPA faculty members embrace all of these titles with passion and zest. Faculty members just don't simply teach, they live a lifestyle day in and day out that is focused around supporting young men and women to be successful in life, whether it is in the classroom, on the athletic fields, or in the community. HPA faculty members wear multiple hats on campus every day, and it is not uncommon that your AP Chemistry teacher who explains permutations and chemical bonds to you in the morning, is also your head coach for basketball in the afternoon, teaching you the finer elements of the pick and roll. By the time evening comes around, that same HPA faculty member is still going, now wearing the hat of dorm parent, feeding you pizza and drinks in his faculty apartment while making sure that everything in your life is okay. So it has been, and so it remains. Much has changed since the first HPA students roamed about Waimea over 60 years ago. In some ways our school today would seem like another world to them - but if there is one element that bonds us to our brothers and sisters who preceded us, it is the sheer dedication and devotion of the faculty who touch our lives everyday.

A DIVERSITY OF TA LE N T â€˘
From the football field to the theatre stage to the classroom, you can find members of the junior class displaying their remarkable creativity and talent in the many facets of Iife on and off campus. With each member's individual talents comes also a genuine sense of acceptance and tolerance, illustrated through constant support and admiration for collective and individual achievements alike. The abilities our class collectively displays far outnumbers that of any given individual. The beauty in this class is found every time someone is featured scoring a goal, making a slam-dunk, singing onstage, swimming a 100 meter race, throwing a touchdown pass, hitting a home run, making a artistic masterpiece, or crossing the finish line. Junior audience members w ill always be the first ones on their feet cheering on their classmates. This simple yet powerful force compliments each individual's weakness with another's strength, creating a solid foundation for growth and ensuring that members of the junior class can look back on their high school experience remembering the strong bonds and memories they create together. W ith this exceptional support system in tact, the juniors foster and allow the growth of these countless talents that are displayed w ithin the class. The juniors know that they w ill have people to support them in every aspect of their passions and interests. It is this combination and diversity of talents that strengthens and cultivates the unparalleled network of the class of 2015. -Class Representatives '15

OPPORTUNITIES HPA offers a multitude of opportunities that we as freshmen are just beginning to discover. We, the class of 2017, didn't hesitate to reach out to capture various opportunities as they were presented; whether on the field, in the classroom, or in the community, our tight knit group of eighty took initiative to be included and involved. As freshmen, we strive to be as wel I rounded as possible. Participating and thriving in our after-school sports, arts and academic programs barely scratched the surface of the abilities and talents our class has to offer. Present in multiple varsity as well as junior varsity sports, HPA's athletic program gives us the opportunity as underclassmen to rise to the occasion and participate in competitive sports. Through the variety of art programs offered at HPA, we are able to test and expand our imaginative capabilities. From the productions performed to the visual art programs, our class is constantly expressing their creativity. In the classroom, we strive for excellence. In the short amount of time we have spent here at the Upper Campus, we fell as if we have made our initial mark and are looking forward to more opportunities Jo shine. The academic experience that Hawaii Prep offers allows each individual an equal opportunity to prosper not only as students, but as citizens. As involved community members, we help by donating our time and effort to benefit our local community to provide opportunities for others. Opportunity is an important part of the fabric of HPA and w ill continue to be utilized by the class of 201 7 thdugh our high school career. -Class Representatives '17
