Aloha from T.A. Principal Daniel Espaniola

Aloha Lahainaluna High School, Students, Faculty, Staff, Parents and Community,

It has been an honor and privilege to be the Temporarily Assigned Principal here at Lahainaluna High for this school year 2016-2017. Lahainaluna High School, its students, faculty, staff, and community are very special and will always be an important part of my educational growth as an administrator. I appreciate all the support of the school and the community. Lahaina is a place rich with tradition and culture and it should be rightfully honored. I believe the people here do a great job to preserve the heritage of this special place.
As we gather at this place of Lahainaluna, we grasp the torch of Excellence, and together let us move forward together.

Aloha and Best Wishes!
Daniel Espaniola
