Pearl City senior will serve on education board


An incoming senior at Pearl City High School is now a member of the state’s Board of Education.

Danson Honda was sworn-in by Hawaii’s Supreme Court chief justice at a board meeting earlier this week.

The Hawaii State Student Council selects a non-voting student member on the governor-appointed board.

Honda is a state medalist in cross-country and part of the Pearl City Charger Marching Band as a drum major.

Board Chairman Don Horner says Honda will be an important voice for the state’s 183,000 public school students.

The board’s outgoing student representative Jannah Dela Cruz recently graduated from Moanalua High School and will be attending Cal Poly San Luis Obispo in the fall.
