We got the privilege to speak with the school safety officer. He told us all about him! His full name is Ryan Kamachi, he is married and has three children. One of them is 13 and his name is Brecken, the other is Conner and he is 9, and the last one is Ashton and he is 6. His favorite thing about being an officer is he gets to hang out with all us kids! His favorite superhero is Batman! He thinks he is really cool because he worked for his “powers” instead of them being handed to him.
He told us that his favorite food is pizza, and he LOVES doughnuts! When he was younger he thought about the military, but that didn’t work out. So he decided the next best thing was to be an officer! He loves his job!
Some of you may have noticed that he has not been in school for the first couple weeks… This was because he had to get surgery on his knee! The reason he had to get surgery was because he went to Hawaii for his 15th anniversary with his wife. He always wanted to go surfing, so he booked a 2-hour long surfing lesson and on his last wave in, he crashed and tore his ACL and meniscus. He has since healed from his injury and is back in school!
The last thing Officer Kamachi wanted all the students to know was that he may seem scary but he is always wanting to get to know the students better, and he likes to joke around. So if you ever need something from him, feel free to go and talk to him in his office by the student store.
