37th Annual Visitor Industry Charity Walk TOTAL RAISED FOR MAUI COUNTY $800,000
Yesterday we honored our Senior AOHT Graduates and Scholarship recipients and had three wonderful speakers! Senator Keith-Agaran, Senator Baker and Councilmember Gladys Baisa. #nationalacademyfoundation #aoht2015 ACADEMY OF HOSPITALITY & TOURISM GRADUATION LUNCHEON
Sen. Roz Baker, Councilwoman Gladys Baisa and I filled in as guest speakers at the annual graduation luncheon at the Paina Dining Hall at UH Maui College. AOHT chapters from Lahainaluna High , Maui High and Baldwin High attended. Sen. Baker spoke about living ALOHA, using as a text the Hawaii Revised Statute sec.5-7.5. Councilwoman Baisa gave some practice advise about working and being part of a team. I, borrowing heavily from Yale University President Peter Salovey, encouraged the students to live Tikkun Olam (repair the world), reminding them that they can live that concept wherever they are and whatever they are doing. I mentioned how different the Hawaii tourism cultural "brand" is from my small kid time (Elvis Presley movies, Brady Bunch episode, hapa-haole music) to today which is trying to provide a glimpse of a more authentic Hawaiian host culture and which has been driven not just by Visitor Industry bosses but by workers-- back of the house and front of the house-- and by people providing services that add to the experience of visitors.
