Student nominated by teacher wins MacBook Pro at mall event

Maui High School freshman Giel Tolentino was awarded a MacBook Pro at the Jan. 6 Maui Mall Family Sundays finale event. The Maui High School student was randomly drawn from a selection of more than 50 nominated students, in kindergarten through the 12th grade, who were previously recognized onstage at Family Sundays events in 2012.

Maui Waena Intermediate School media and robotics adviser Jennifer Suzuki nominated Tolentino last school year. In addition to calling her “one of the most amazing young ladies I have ever met,” Suzuki said Tolentino was organized and had extraordinary leadership potential.
