On April 6, Kamehameha Schools Maui’s class of 2014 celebrated their junior prom at the King Kamehameha Golf Course with “A Touch of Class.”

“When I think of ‘a touch of class,’ I think of the guys being gentlemen for the girls and pulling out their chairs,” said junior Taimane Aina.

Ladies dressed in vibrant colors and gentlemen who were at their finest in looks and manners filled the Marilyn Monroe building. Picture-taking, laughter and memories in the making were the order of the evening at this year’s prom.

Students showed their crazy and wild sides with colorful boas, hats and sunglasses at the fun photo booth. And, of course, Nagamine Studios was there to take traditional photos for couples and friends.

The night continued with the announcements of the “hall of fame” students elected by the class of 2014 for different titles.

Shalia Kamakaokalani and Siaosi Ngalu were named Mr. and Ms. Aloha, and Mr. and Ms. Spirit went to Rusty Hue Sing and Malia Molina.

Mr. and Ms. Beast, or Most Athletic, went to Quinn Kihune and Lily Higashino, and the king and queen for this year, as voted by their very own classmates, were Avinash Singh and Kyana-lei Yamada.

Soon after, flashing strobe lights and the latest hits filed the ballroom, and it was time for dancing. The students enjoyed each other’s company as they danced the night away.

Kamehameha students and their guests both had an enjoyable evening.

“One thing I liked about prom was being with my friends and being able to see them,” said James DeCambra, a junior from Baldwin High School who attended the event.
