By Staff | Dec 30, 2010


LAHAINA — Leilani’s on the Beach named Officer Harry Matsuura Jr. its “Police Officer of the Month” and Randy Casco its “Educator of the Month” for November.

Both were selected based on their dedication to their jobs and positive contributions to the Maui community.

“Leilani’s is always happy to honor outstanding citizens like Officer Matsuura and Mr. Casco,” said Leilani’s General Manager Jason Donez.

“Not only do they work hard in creating a positive community environment, but they’re also great role models for the younger generations.”

Matsuura has served with the Maui Police Department (MPD) for 11 years and attributes his outstanding job performance to the many years of on-the-job training he’s received.


Matsuura was previously honored with a Bronze Medal of Valor with another officer for rescuing victims from a house fire in Lahaina.

Casco has worked at Lahaina Intermediate School for 18 years. He is currently the physical education teacher as well as the school’s track coach and speed and fitness coach.

Casco enjoys teaching because it allows him to make a positive impact on students. In addition to being a teacher and coach, Casco also serves as the state director for the United States Tae Kwon Do Federation.

Both honorees received a $100 gift certificate to Leilani’s on the Beach.

Located at Whalers Village, Leilani’s on the Beach actively gives back to the community by supporting canoe clubs, sponsoring events and developing programs like “Police Officer of the Month” and “Educator of the Month.” For information, call 661-4495 or visit www.leilanis.com.
