Honoring Ted Fukushima and Larry Ginoza
The Oahu Interscholastic Association Athletic Foundation (OIAAF) honored two former Athletic Directors whose names are synonymous with the OIA, Ted Fukushima, retired OIA Executive Director and Kaiser High School Athletic Director, and Larry Ginoza, retired Athletic Director and football coach from Waianae High School at its eighth annual fundraising dinner on Thursday, March 21, 2013, 6:00pm at the Sheraton Waikiki Hotel.
These two OIA icons represent over 75 years of dedication to the OIA and the DOE and both were at their respective schools when they opened, Waianae High in 1957 and Kaiser High in 1971. As educators, they both emphasized the lifelong lessons of positive character development through athletic participation. Through their teaching and coaching, student athletes were taught the importance of humility, teamwork, perseverance, work ethic, commitment, and responsibility. The teachings of these two individuals developed a culture of civic responsibility for thousands of student athletes.
