Everyone Wins at Local 1 Hawaii Apprentice Contest

Journal: August - September 2001

BAC apprentices from across the Hawaiian Islands gathered in Honolulu in July, for a weekend of competition and camaraderie at Local 1 Hawaii’s 11th Annual Hawaii State and 4th Annual Invitational Apprentice Contest. Apprentices vied for honors in one of two categories—ceramic tile setting and bricklaying. BAC Executive Vice President Gerald O’Malley attended the competition, and was also on hand to present the awards at a special ceremony on Sunday, where he was joined by Local 1 Business Manager Nolan Moriwaki, and other guests representing the state’s union masonry industry.

As the awards presentation got underway, O’Malley commended all of the competing apprentices, program sponsors, coordinators, and judges for their work, proclaiming them all to be “winners” in their own right.

Bricklayer/Mason Winners:
Thomas Tobin 1st Place
Guy I. Kumashiro 2nd Place
Ryan K. Reyes 3rd Place
Ceramic Tile Winners:
Mario V. Pasion 1st Place
Peter W. Kekua 2nd Place
John L. Alvarez 3rd Place
