Who is your personal hero and why? "My personal heroes are Edwin Ginoza and Keith Imada, both science teachers at Maui High School. These two men have transformed my life as both a student and a citizen by challenging the way that I think about practically everything. It is because of their incredible dedication that I have been able to progress this far in my education, and they have made me extremely passionate about my future in mathematics and science. Additionally, they have shown me that the greatest, noblest skill any person can master is teaching - the future career that I am looking forward to the most."
The students in this weekly feature are selected by officials at their respective high schools. "Student Spotlight" recognizes students of good character who are involved in school or community activities such as athletics, clubs, student government and volunteer work.
