A Fundraiser will be held for Maui High School Teacher Mike Siopes tonight (Thursday, May 06, 2010) at Ruby’s Diner at the Queen Ka’ahumanu Shopping Center. Siopes, who has been with the DOE for 17 years, was recently diagnosed with the rare Neuroendocrine Cancer and is being treated at Duke Medical Center in North Carolina. Over the years Siopes’ students have voted him “most entertaining” and “funniest” teacher. Proceeds from tonight’s event will help to defray medical costs.
