Polynesian Cultural Center musician nominated for national educator award
Sharing her talents at the Polynesian Cultural Center of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints has also helped her be bolder about sharing the gospel.
“PCC has also been a great missionary tool learning experience for me. Because I am grounded and know gospel principles, and at PCC we actually work and live them, I’ve been better able to share them," Alaiasa said.
“My colleagues and supervisors always ask me, ‘Why are you so different?’ Even when I was in Washington, they asked me, ‘Why is it that you’re different?’
“I tell them it’s the core values of being a Latter-day Saints and having had fundamental gospel principles taught to my brothers, Sean and Seamus Fitzgerald, and I at a young age," she said. "It also has a lot to do with learning and growing here at Polynesian Cultural Center, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year. I try to promote it and what we stand for whenever I can.
"I even wore my PCC shirt to the nominations banquet.”
Mike Foley currently volunteers his Internet content skills for the Polynesian Cultural Center's 50th anniversary website at www.pcc50.com and other outlets.
