A special mahalo to Leeward Community College-Wai’anae English 100 instructor Danny Wyatt, who has been the driving force behind this idea of publishing student works in 21maile. Mahalo, also, to Heather Calderwood and Colleen Teramae, Senator Shimabukuro’s legislative assistant and office manager, who worked with Danny to get this publication off the ground.
