My Students

Our day starts with about 100 student-athletes from low-income backgrounds. More than half of these athletes don’t have the basic safety and workout attire, shoes, and socks. As a staff, we want our kids to compete at the same level as their peers from other school districts.

Our student-athletes are composed of a majority Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islanders who live on Hawaiian Homestead and low-income rental housing projects.

They have a very limited worldview because of the lack of opportunities and travel outside of our small community. They have unique personalities, but they are very loyal and dedicated. No one knows my students' ability because they are not portrayed to the public. The only representation of our community is negative media and below average demographics.

My Project

Lack of equipment prohibits proper training and preparation to compete with other schools with top of the line facilities and equipment. Our school, NHIS, ranks last in the state for academic achievement. However, since we have been in charge of the program, 50% of our football athletes have earned honor roll/principal’s list accolades.

My student athletes will be able to train like the rest of the teams in our country.

A single piece of equipment will allow each student to take their game to the next level. They will learn how to train their bodies physically to perform the rigorous activities associated with the game of football. They will also learn safety procedures and proper techniques to minimize injuries.

For this project, we are requesting Ladders and Agility Poles. The Ladders and Agility Poles will be used to build speed, quickness, and agility with our team. They will be used throughout the summer during our practices to build our team for the upcoming season.
