It was a great privilege to be hired by St. Louis School to bring Hawaiian entertainment to its New York gathering in support of Heisman Trophy finalist Marcus Mariota. The gathering took place at Lexington Brass in Manhattan where school administrators, alumni, and Marcus’ family were in attendance. We had a great time meeting everyone and sharing in the excitement and anticipation. Three local news stations from Hawai’i covered the event.
The following day, Mariota won the Heisman Trophy in convincing style, finishing well ahead of fellow finalists Amari Cooper and Melvin Gordon to become the first Heisman winner from the state of Hawai’i and University of Oregon. “We congratulate Marcus Mariota for winning the 2014 Heisman Award!” said St. Louis School president Walter Kirimitsu. “We are truly proud of Marcus in all of his achievements, on-the-field, in academics and character.”
A big congratulations to Marcus Mariota, his family and the state of Hawai’i.
