Kamibayashi was named 2018 Librarian of the Year for the entire state. A statement from The Friends of Hawaiʻi Library said, "Sara Kamibayashi is anything but quiet! She is a warm and welcoming force at the smallest library branch, Nāʻālehu Public Library on the Big Island. Kamibayashi is originally from Virginia and came to Hawaiʻi to volunteer at Volcanoes National Park, where she met her husband. In 2008, she earned her Masters of Library Science and became a full-time librarian in 2013. Through her willingness to dress up and to try new programs, she is making sure her small branches are well used and full of excitement."

KAʻŪ TROJANS TOOK ON THE KAMEHAMEHA FOOTBALL TEAM in Kea'au on Thursday. Kamehameha continued its string of preventing its opponents from achieving any score. The final was Kamehameha 50, Kaʻū zero. The game saw a fumble recovery giving Kamehameha the opportunity to run 15 yards into the end zone for its first touchdown. Kamehameha Warriors intercepted the ball six times during the encounter with the Trojans.
"Senior Jonah Beck was all over the field for Kaʻū, forcing a fumble and making a handful of tackles for loss.
“That guy, No. 11 (Beck), he was everywhere,” said Nihoa, also an offensive lineman. “No. 11 and No. 66 (Micah Espejo).”
"Bailing on its run game against a stout defense, the Trojans found some success through the air, with Kaimana Kaupu-Manini making four catches." See the entire story at https://www.hawaiitribune-herald.com/2021/11/11/sports/biif-football-kamehameha-remains-impenetrable-in-shutting-out-kau/.
