MHS 75th Anniversary Committee News Release

It’s hard to believe Molokai High School has been educating young minds for 75 years. MHS has transformed through the years — our kupuna remember raising swine and growing crops. Today, still known as the Farmers, MHS continues to perpetuate its long-standing motto.

That night will be filled with music, local entertainment, contest for kupuna and youngsters alike — we’re planning to walk you down memory lane. We’ve got the following space available for those interested: food, craft, jewelry, games and new clothing vendor booths.

We’ve left no stone unturned and are on the lookout for contestants for the “Molokai’s Got Talent” contest for all ages, from cute as a button, to our magnificent and daring kupuna! We’re also looking for class spirit competition, so bring it on!
