HSTA State Leadership Team to Serve through 2021

News Release from HSTA, April 9, 2018

HONOLULU, HAWAII – The Hawaii State Teachers Association (HSTA) has announced its new state officers. Corey Rosenlee has been re-elected to a second term as HSTA state president, along with Osa Tui, Jr. as the new state vice president and Logan Okita as the new state secretary-treasurer.

The new HSTA state leadership team will start their three-year term July 8, 2018.

“I offer my congratulations to our new team on their election,” said HSTA President Corey Rosenlee. “I wish them the best in leading our association as the HSTA continues to advocate for our teachers and for the schools our keiki deserve.”

Voting took place throughout the state earlier this year on all islands. The HSTA’s Elections Committee tallied the ballots February 24 and March 17, as overseen by the League of Women Voters. Results were submitted and certified by the HSTA’s Board of Directors.

State President

Corey Rosenlee was unopposed in running for his second three-year term as president. He will continue on leave from his social studies teaching position at Campbell High School to serve in the HSTA president’s position.

State Vice President

Osa Tui, Jr., the registrar at McKinley High School, was elected as the new state vice president in an uncontested race. Tui is currently the president of HSTA’s Honolulu Chapter, representing nearly 2,500 teachers. Before that, he chaired HSTA’s Negotiations Committee.

State Secretary-Treasurer

The new state secretary-treasurer will be Logan Okita, who is a first grade teacher at Nimitz Elementary School. She serves on the HSTA’s Board of Directors from the Central Chapter and won the union’s S.T.A.C.Y. award for teaching excellence in 2016.

NEA Director

HSTA members also re-elected Cliff Fukuda as the National Education Association (NEA) director for the upcoming three-year term, which begins Sept. 1. He is a social studies teacher and coach at ‘Aiea High School. Jamie Stidger, an English teacher at Castle High School, will serve as the NEA alternate director.
