October 27, 2011 - On Thursday October 27th, 2011, Aiea held its talent search auditions in the gym beginning at 1:15 afterschool. Many students came out to audition with a variety of different talents such as singing, dancing, and performing. With this unique array of people, the gym during this period was filled with a couple of hours of the best talents in the school.
