Project grad open house Tuesday
The Kealakehe Project Grad 2018 Planning Committee is forming now. An open house meeting will be held at 6 p.m. Tuesday in the Kealakehe High School library. We invite parents and teachers of Kealakehe and WHEA High Schools to get involved by attending this informational meeting.
Project Graduation is an organized, adult-supervised, substance- and alcohol-free, all night event offered by many high schools across the nation as an alternative to student-run events involving alcoholic beverages or other drugs. Kealakehe Project Grad, a Hawaii nonprofit 501(c)3 corporation, serves Kealakehe and WHEA High Schools, as these schools share a graduation day.
Since the inception of this all-volunteer entity, there have been no graduate-related fatalities on graduation night.
