Alma mater[edit]

In old Kahuku stands our Alma Mater
Where the salt winds blow day after day
With her doors flung wide
For her sons and daughters true
While the flag of freedom proudly waves above.
Hail Kahuku, Hail our Alma Mater
Hail to our colors red and white
We'll cherish, love, and honor thee
All hail, Kahuku, hail! [2]
Music by William Sievers
