He lamakū nō ʻoe nāna e hoʻā i ka ʻike me ka manaʻolana no Ka Lāhui.
No laila, mahalo iā ʻoe i kou kukui e hoʻomālamalama nei i ke alahula i hele ʻia a maʻa e nā kūpuna.
You are a torch that ignites knowledge and hope throughout our Lāhui. Set aglow by our kūpuna and carried forward by you, this torch provides inspiration and direction to our most precious waiwai–our keiki. Mahalo for providing the brightest of lights to illuminate the alahula well traveled by our ancestors and new trails for our lāhui as we holomua.
As a symbol of our deep gratitude for all that you do, we hope you enjoy this specially designed pin featuring a lamakū, as a hōʻailona of the appreciation our Lāhui has for your esteemed role. We know that through your efforts in Hawaiian education you help to grow Aloha ʻĀina who will mālama and nurture our ‘ōpio, our future.
When you wear this pin, we hope it will remind you of your role in forwarding through education the light of knowledge wherever you go, wherever you teach.
