Honorary Diplomas For Waialua Students Killed In Crash

Shane bachiller and Lanikila Vierra were not forgotten.

The two-teens died in a car accident three weeks ago.

Saturday night they were honored along with their 132-graduating classmates at Waialua High School.

While the senior class of Waialua High School is getting ready to begin their new lives as graduates, two fellow classmates who couldn't be with them at graduation, were with them in spirit.

On May 13th, the two 18-year old football players and a group of friends crashed into a tree on Kaukonahua Road.

The driver fell asleep at the wheel. Three survived but Shane and Lanikila died in the crash. They were celebrating Shane's 18th birthday.
