Perry Arrasmith, Student Association vice president from Aiea High School, and Zachary Espino, student body president from Kailua High School were chosen to represent Hawaii at the 54th annual United States Senate Youth Program (USSYP) in Washington D.C. in March.
Hawaii DOE Superintendent Kathryn Matayoshi said “We are proud of these students for their leadership roles in student government and are confident that they will represent Hawaii well.” In Washington D.C.

They will receive a $5,000 college scholarship to the university of their choice.
