Announcement – New PrincipalDear OACA Members,
On July 20, 2021, after repeated requests, the Board of OACA accepted Ms. Shyu's resignation as the Principal of the Chinese School. She nominated Ms. Leilani W. Panoke as the new Principal. In accordance with Article 7.6 of the OACA by-laws, the Board reviewed and approved Ms. Panoke's appointment unanimously. This appointment will take effect immediately.
Despite reluctance, the Board had to accepted Ms. Shyu's resignation due to her personal and family health issues. Principal Shyu devoted 30 years of her life to the Chinese School. She has been diligent, conscientious, and hands-on, taking on many laborious tasks behind the scenes. In addition to overseeing the operation, she also taught in person and insists on not taking any compensation. She strives to use all available resources, which allows the school to maintain an incredibly low tuition fee. She encouraged and led students to participate in various competitions, led teachers to participate in professional training, planed and supported many large-scale community cultural activities, and promoted Chinese culture as indicated in OACA's charter. We sincerely thank Ms. Shyu with no reservation! We also wish her and her family good health.
The new principal, Ms. Leilani W. Panoke (a.k.a. Feng Ling 王凤玲), has been a teacher at Olympia Chinese School for many years and will be teaching at Olympia School District. She has taught at the Hawaii Chinese School for many years before moving to Olympia. She is also an avid editor/writer with many publications. She is sincere, steady, has a sense of fairness and justice, and carries a writer's rigor and discipline. Her enthusiasm and vision for the Chinese School will lead the school to new heights. Please join us to welcome her.
