3The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, June 15, 2013See GRADUATION, page 6By Molly Premo Media Services InternJune marks the end of the school year for students, but for hard working seniors, it marks the end of their high school careers. Graduation is one of Kwajalein’s most unique and traditional ceremonies; the community shows up in support of the graduating class. Anxious family and friends began lining up in front of the Davye Davis Multi-Purpose Room more than an hour early on June 7, in order to nd the best possible seats. Seventeen barefoot graduates entered the room, lit only by the candles they carried, and proceeded down a woven mat bearing the motivational message “Follow Your Dreams.” Natasha Tomas and Hagar Kabua were the rst speakers of the night. The two students welcomed all of the guests to graduation, Tomas speaking in Marshallese and Kabua translating the message into English. Rachel Flaugh followed with the Valedictorian Address. The speech started lightheartedly when Flaugh joked about Kwaj’s slow dial up internet making it impossible for her to nd inspirational speech ideas. “If someone would have told me two years ago that I would be graduating from a private school, on a tiny island, in the middle of the Paci c Ocean, I would have laughed at them.” Flaugh continued on about life-long friends, the excellence of KHS faculty and the numerous community service clubs and activities here on Kwajalein that inspire others to make a difference. She reminded her peers to focus on the things that matter in life, like family, friends, dreams and values. Flaugh ended her speech by thanking the Kwajalein Community and fellow classmates and congratulating the class of 2013. Kori Dowell performed “My Wish” by Rascal Flats. Kori was accompanied only by an instrumental version of the song, and for one last time, Dowell blew her audience away. Yomoko Kemem, Junior Class Secretary, initiated the scholarship section of the ceremony by presenting the rst of fourteen scholarships awarded to the seniors. Dowell made another appearance later in the night to give the Salutatorian Address. “We are more than just a class, we are ohana.” She continued, “There is a huge world just waiting for us, and we can conquer it with the lessons Kwaj has taught us.” She encouraged classmates to stay strong and persevere, and reassured “if you can’t do it alone, you can always count on one of us.” Dowell ended by saying, “Stay strong and always believe, and you are sure to achieve everything you dream.” Kabua kept the night moving with her hula to “Himene Tatarahapa.” Kabua’s solo dance made a beautiful last impression on the Kwajalein and Ebeye communities. Jamie Simpson, Malkie Loeak and Kori Dowell followed Kabua’s act with their rendition of the senior class’s Class of 2013 ready to take on the worldThe seventeen members of the class of 2013 relax after the June 7 graduation ceremony.Photo by Molly Premo


4The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, June 15, 2013After 30 years, the musical duo of Kwajalein Schools say farewellBy Sheila Gideon Managing Editor After 30 years at Kwajalein, Dick and Cheryl Shields are leaving paradise for another one. The longtime music duo of Kwajalein Schools will depart June 18 and head to the Kona side of Big Island where their home is waiting for them. Dick has run the band program at Kwajalein Jr./Sr. High School, while Cheryl has taken care of the elementary music program and high school choir. The Shields arrived in 1983, making their time on Kwajalein an even 30 years. But, music had been in their lives for many years before that. Before Kwajalein, Dick and Cheryl taught for 13 years in Ohio. Part of that was big city and part was very rural. “Then I worked at a school that in many ways was not much different than here (Kwajalein),” he explained. He ran fthand sixth-grade, junior high, high school and stage bands. “When I came out here, the weather was different, but the program was very much like what I had done there, and I think that helped me to get a good foothold as I started here.” Dick’s love for music began in high school. “I had a really exciting junior high band director and a very committed church hand bell director. Those two people … really got me involved in music.” Up through the beginning of his senior year in high school, he knew he enjoyed music, but planned on majoring in physics at college. About halfway through his senior year of high school he had an epiphany about music. “If I enjoy it this much, I ought to do it,” he recalled. When asked what his favorite instrument is to play, Dick didn’t hesitate to say, “I’m a clarinet player.” Dick can play every band instrument. “Everything that I teach, I know how to play.” He said he is strongest on woodwinds, but enjoys the challenge of switching between instruments with the students during the day. Cheryl is a French horn and accomplished piano player. She is best known for her singing voice, which she is classically trained in. While Dick can also carry a tune, and has lled in as tenor for the Community Choir over the years, he mostly leaves the singing to his wife. Throughout the years, the Shields have been involved in countless concerts, holiday performances and ballroom dinner dances. The band plays on Ebeye every year for the Memorial Day parade and even ew to Majuro for the 25th anniversary of the signing of the RMI constitution. Besides being in the spotlight, Dick also plays a supporting role, setting up and running sound for various piano recitals, talent shows and graduation ceremonies. While all the performances are gratifying, it’s clear why Dick loves his job as much as he does: the students. “This is a very, very special bunch of students here,” he said. While in the States, some band members work hard in order to go on trips to play at places like Disneyland, here, there are no such perks. “The kids are so committed to working with the band that I don’t need to have incentives.” The students often rush from nishing one activity to the school to perform in a concert. “You need to know the fundamentals, but it’s important to remember that you play an instrument,” is the lesson Dick tries to make sure each student learns when they go through his program. The hard work associated with rehearsing is expected, but if you lose the love of playing the instrument, you need to nd something else. “It’s interesting that playing an instrument and being at play, whether you’re on a playground or anywhere else, is the same concept.” Having been here 30 years, there have been many Dick and Cheryl Shields dance at the Ballroom Dinner Dance, an event they hosted for 25 years on Kwajalein.


5The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, June 15, 2013 Dick Shields directs the High School Band during the Memorial Day ceremony on Kwajalein this year.changes to the school and the island itself. One big change Dick has noticed is the decline in student population. Despite the lesser number of students at the school, there have been the same number of kids involved in music; so, the percentage of kids involved in the music program has increased throughout the years. There has also been an increase in Marshallese students both at the school and involved in the music program. “The Marshallese kids certainly have a gift for music.” Dick hasn’t kept an accurate number of students who continue on with music, but they are out there. He’s contacted some old students on social media sites, and some of them are involved in music, some even professionally. But, more than that, he said, what he enjoys most is when they thanked him for helping them to enjoy music and then hearing that love was passed along to their children. “I love that part,” he explained. He said this is similar for Cheryl. She will teach students songs in elementary school, and when it comes time for senior memories at graduation, they will mention those songs or programs. “That’s really special to us.” Some of his favorite students, though, were his three children, Amber, Colin, and Tyler, who all went to KHS and through the music program. Amber played clarinet, taking after Dick, and Cheryl Shields plays the French horn during a Community Band Concert in the MP Room at the high school.the boys played trombone. Tyler even came back to Kwajalein and worked for several years, and participated in the Community Band. “That was a treat, but it was also kind of a challenge because you know Tyler,” he joked. Sometimes during rehearsals Dick didn’t dare look back at Tyler, who would be doing something hilarious. “I couldn’t look at the other side of the room because Cheryl had seen him and was already laughing. So I’d just keep my head in the music and try to avoid eye contact.” Dick said being able to work so closely to his wife all these years has been really special. It’s not only that she helps events run smoothly, but it was nice to be able to go home and share the joys or frustrations of the day and have her understand. “[Cheryl] has kept the sanity in me. … She helps keep it all in balance.” After 30 years on Kwajalein, knowing when to leave and retire is a tricky decision. “We still don’t know that it’s time,” he said. “We wanted to make sure that we had a lot of energy and time to do the next chapter.” What do you miss the most after leaving the place you’ve lived for 30 years? Dick was quick to answer, “My boat and my bicycle. … I’m going to miss working with the kids every day.”The Shields take a break at Coffee Shop for some dancing.


6The Kwajalein Hourglass Saturday, June 15, 2013GRADUATION, from page 3history. They began with kindergarten, reminiscing about learning letters, colors and songs and shared a different event from each year. The audience roared in laughter as the students told stories of when Loeak spelled awful “offel” during a spelling bee, and lost to Dowell, or when Doerries had an unfortunate experience in chemistry while trying to light a balloon on re. As Mary will tell you, “the re tried to eat her.” They continued by recalling past Turkey Bowls, trips to Bigej and putting on school dances. The graduates then joined the crowd as a slide show played on stage. Each senior had photos of their life, including baby photos, which received playful laughs and “awws” from the audience. Seelye, McPhatter and Flaugh thanked all of the teachers for strengthening them intellectually, but recognized a few special individuals. First, they called Cheryl and Richard Shields up to the stage, bestowing leis upon them. They expressed their gratitude to these two people who dedicated their time and commitment to both the school and the community. Barbara Bicanich, described as “wonder woman,” also joined the graduates on the stage. “Without her direction and organization, none of us would be graduating on the stage tonight,” the students said. The last to be called up were Jamie Bowers, whose “guidance has pushed us to reach the highest success and accomplish any task,” and Annie Dowell who “goes above and beyond to make every experience magni cent.” The Kwajalein Community was thanked for providing unique opportunities, and most importantly, parents were acknowledged for their immeasurable support and endless sacri ces. Graduates left the stage for the most emotional part of the evening, when the graduates give their parents hugs and leis to show their appreciation and love. Allan Robinson, Superintendent, called the graduates back to the stage to present the Salutatorian and Valedictorian medals. The two highest grade point averages were separated by just over one-hundredth of a point! Salutatorian Kori Dowell had a combined comprehensive cumulative grade point average of 3.911, and with a 3.926 GPA, this year’s Valedictorian was Rachel Flaugh. Finally, Mr. Joseph Moscone and Sgt. Maj. Roderick Prioleau joined Robinson to award the diplomas. Photos by Molly Premo and Shawn Brady

This moment brought roars of applause for the class of 2013. The ceremony nished as the graduated seniors walked out to the upbeat song “On Top of the World.”
