Farrington High School Scholarship Night
Date: May 12, 2020
Donors & Recipients Check In Time: 5:30 pm
Program Start Time: 6:00 pm
Program End Time: 8:30 pm
T-Shirt Theatre explores the idea of sacredness. What is “Sacred”? Why does it hold such an important place in your heart? How does a person, occasion, or place shift from being ordinary and mundane to claiming a “sacred” position in your life?
Our spring production explores the relevance of sanctity and how young people relate to what’s sacred. Come laugh, cry, and experience the short scenes and ensemble scripts to be topped off with sprinkles of original music. Our shows are student-produced and performed by a company of 20-25 Kalihi students.
Please refer to our flyer for show dates and times. For more information on T-Shirt Theatre call our Executive Director George Kon (808) 220-5003, or email him at email@example.com. Mahalo, and we hope to see you there!

Scholarship Night 2019
In 1975, seven Farrington graduates met one day to brainstorm ideas to provide scholarships to Farrington High School students for their continuing education. From these humble beginnings grew the first public school alumni foundation in the state: the Farrington Alumni and Community Foundation. Since its founding, alumni, community leaders and the general public that share the same vision to enhance the Farrington High School community have joined FACF, making it Hawaii’s largest public school alumni group.
Since 1976, FACF has provided Farrington High School with thousands of dollars to promote student learning and achievement.
The Foundation began with $310 in member contributions in its first year. With a rise in membership and donations from community organizations, assets surpassed the $5,000 mark by 1978. Board members organized fundraisers such as dinners and lei sales to continue growth. Many other alumni donated sizable amounts. Then, in 1993, the Foundation took a giant step forward when Koon Hin Choy provided over $250,000 for the Lokahi Scholarships.
Currently, the Foundation fulfills its purpose ably. Over $100,000 in scholarships is awarded to graduating seniors including renewable scholarships. Furthermore, thousands of dollars were given to various school programs in science, math, humanities, the arts, and general education.
The FACF roster continues to thrive monthly with new members and alumni joining each year. Through many generous donations and scholarships donors, FACF has experienced steady annual growth. Through the FACF News, FACF has also become a major resource in publicizing alumni activities and reunions.
From a simple brainstorming session in 1975, our Foundation has grown into an institution that has helped thousands of students and alumni live our school motto of “Enter to Learn. Go Forth to Serve”.

Mahalo to all who already submitted their 2019 dues! FACF
membership dues are renewable each calendar year if you are not a
life member. Dues may be paid anytime during the calendar year,
but earlier is better!
Dues are still $10 a year. A membership contribution of
$100 or more within a calendar year will qualify you for life
membership. All contributions are tax deductible since FACF is a
501 (c)(3) non-profit organization.
Dues for FHS students are $10 for 5 years. Seniors can
pay the student price up until December 31st of the year they
If you are a life member, a membership level letter code is
noted to the right of your name on the newsletter label. (See
membership levels listing for letter codes.) After becoming a life
member, future contributions will be considered as donations,
not member dues. However, your life member & contributions
thereafter may move you to other life member categories,
depending on the dollar amounts.
If you are not a life member, the year you last paid dues is
noted to the right of your name on your newsletter label. You will
be dropped from the newsletter mail list when you do not renew
your dues. Send in your dues right away! Don’t risk getting
dropped from the active member list!
If you send contributions through a retirement plan,
make sure you are noted as the donor so we can credit you for
