A&B Sports Spotlight Celebrates 20 Years
A&B, in partnership with the MIL and The Maui News, founded Sports Spotlight in 1999. A total of twelve public and private schools participate in the Sports Spotlight program: Baldwin High School, Hana High School, Kamehameha Schools Maui, Kihei Charter, King Kekaulike, Lahainaluna, Lana’i High and Elementary, Maui High, Maui Preparatory Academy, Molokai High School, Seabury Hall, and St. Anthony Junior-Senior High School.
Each year, 84 student athletes are selected by their coaches and school administrators for recognition in the program. Male and female athletes are highlighted weekly, and a $200 grant is provided to the school in the student’s name to support sports programming. Total donations to Maui athletic programs have totaled over $250,000. Over 1,600 Maui County young men and women have been recognized in the last 20 years.
The annual athlete’s reception hosted by A&B is attended by over 300 people – athletes and their families, school and league administrators, state and county elected officials and numerous Maui employees. The year-end reception and has become a recognized and anticipated high school event. #ABSportsSpotlight
