PAAC Student Showcase 2024

Saturday, May 4, 2024

Get ready for the ultimate finale
at PAAC's third annual PAAC Student Showcase! 

It's going to be a blast from start to finish, and we've got an exciting surprise waiting for you at the end!

But first, let's kick things off with a bang with our esteemed keynote speaker, Ryan Berney, human rights director for the National Security Council, who will share personal insights into the world of local community organizing and human rights advocacy. It's going to be eye-opening, for sure! Learn more about Mr. Ryan here.
Then, get ready to give a round of applause for our Gold, Silver, and Bronze Clubs as we honor their outstanding achievements. And guess what? We have some VIPs joining us - State Representatives from the Hawaiʻi Legislature! They'll be awarding academic and travel scholarships to our exceptional students, turning dreams into reality.
And let's not forget to tip our hats to the unsung heroes - our wonderful community members! We're extending a warm invitation to everyone who's supported PAAC this year because, let's be honest, we couldn't do it without you! 
And here's the cherry on top: After all the excitement, we're inviting PAAC Alumni to join us for a mixer! It's a chance to reconnect, share memories, and inspire the next generation of leaders. 
It's a time to recognize the incredible efforts of our students, teachers, and community supporters. Trust us, you won't want to miss this memorable event! See you there!
