Students discover agriculture with CTAHRAA

For the seventh year in a row, the College of Tropical Agriculture and Human Resources Alumni Association (CTAHRAA) contributed to the Hawai‘i AgDiscovery program for local teens. CTAHRAA participated in the opening and closing ceremonies, the Ala Moana beach barbecue and song and hula lessons.

The beach barbecue is a popular event at which the high school students get to meet various CTAHR alumni. Much appreciation goes to board members Steve Sato, Linda Ogata and Susan Yasuda for their donation of food, desserts, and supplies, and for setting up and cleaning up.

Tropical plant and soil sciences PhD student and former CTAHRAA president Kauahi Perez taught a hula to the 10 AgDiscovery participants, which they performed at the closing ceremony. The hula was simple and upbeat, and the performance was excellent—they even sang while dancing!

A big mahalo to the CTAHR alumni for making Hawai‘i’s AgDiscovery Program one of the best in the nation, year after year!
