Molokai High School senior Michael Kikukawa has had an exciting week of events in Washington, D.C. as part of the Hawaii delegation in the 51st annual United States Senate Youth Program.

A total of 104 students representing every state in the country participate in this merit-based program. Over the past week the students have been studying the inner workings of the federal government and the people who lead it.

The whirlwind of activities culminated yesterday with a visit from President Barack Obama. The president addressed the whole group and then shook hands with each individual during a photo opportunity.

With Kikukawa’s expressed interest in studying pre-law when he begins college at Harvard University in the fall, he might be making many future visits to our nation’s capitol. Who knows, maybe this talented student leader will be the first U.S. Representative in Congress to hail from Molokai, or perhaps the second native-born son of Hawaii to become president?

Dream big Michael and keep up the good work!
