The Black and Gold 1975
Faculty Social Life Takes on Merriment, Nonsense
Between the duties of teaching and correcting stacks of homework papers, members of the McKinley Teachers Association found the time to get together for a little fun.
Striving for better social and professional contacts, the MTA held various activities throughout the year.
The first big event of the year was a “China Nite” faculty dinner at King’s Garden with Queen Fely Serra reigning over the festivities. This was followed by a Thanksgiving Turkey Roast and the annual faculty Christmas party. The star of the show as jolly ‘ole St. Nick in the person of Principal Young Yee Ko.
A real Hawaiian style luau, for faculty members, families and guest, took place on the Campbell estate at Ewa Beach in May.
MTA officers included Mrs. Carolyn Chang, president; Mr. John Hawkins, vice president; Miss Barbara Kakuda, secretary; and Mr. Ronald Uchida, treasurer. Under direction of Mr Margaret Leong, the aloha committee remembered sick members or made leis wherever needed.
Small groups of teachers found time for playing basketball, golf and tennis during after school hours. All found time for congenial activities during their duty-free lunch period, in various parts of the campus.
