The Pinion

Hi, my name is Shane Kaneshiro, Class of 2024. I grew up on the campus because my mom teaches here. One cool fact is that I volunteered to help the freshman class during McKinley’s 150th-anniversary luau when I was in the 4th grade. I trained for the Hapalua half marathon and completed it in an hour and 35 minutes. Other sports I enjoy are tennis, cross country and track.

I enrolled in Newswriting to help me get better with my writing during my freshman year. During the virtual year of 2020-2021, I found the past Pinion issues very intriguing. During my sophomore year, I interviewed a nisei veteran for the Nisei Legacy project that was partnered with the Star-Advertiser.  Another achievement I was able to participate in with The Pinion was to pass the Student Journalism bill in the legislature. Let me know if you have ideas you want me to write about at [email protected]
