Maia is an amazing young woman, who is respected and admired by both students and faculty at Wilson High School. She is deeply connected to her family and her culture and loves big family gatherings. Maia is involved in so many activities at Wilson and somehow manages to give 110% to everything she does. She has been a unifying and positive force this year in her role as an officer of the Asian Pacific Islander Club and as a member of Students of Color in Action Association. She is an outstanding wrestler, and her commitment to her team is exemplary as she continues to attend matches even tho she can't compete due to some cracked ribs. She goes the extra mile academically and is willing to work hard to earn strong grades. And she has been known to extend her gratitude to teachers who go out of their way to help. Maia is a Peer Counselor and shares her kindness and positivity with everyone she meets. Maia sings in two of our choirs with a voice like an angel and can often be heard erupting into song in the middle of a school day! Maia is a student who we all can be very proud of and someone who sets an amazing example for all - she is lovely, kind, musical, respectful, hard-working, responsible, funny, positive, and devoted to her family, friends, and to everything she does at Wilson High School. We are so proud to honor her with this recognition!
Shaho Meman displayed high standards of sportsmanship and integrity during the wrestling season. He was a competitive athlete on the mat and was also an inspiration to fellow teammates. His work ethic, desire to improve his skills and commitment to the sport of wrestling was seen day in and day out. He was asked to compete in a match against an athlete from Aloha HS who had cerebral palsy. Shaho gave this student a match to remember, and ended up getting pinned by his opponent. The entire gym and all wrestling teams exploded in enthusiasm and appreciation for Shaho's display of sportsmanship.
