About Coach

SOLOMON GORDON BATOON“Post By Lindsey Gamiao”2019 FACF ALUMNI OF THE YEAR INDUCTEE
Our own Class of 66 Alumni, Solomon Batoon, was selected as one of the honorees for this prestigious award to be presented to him at the FACF [Farrington Alumni & Community Foundation] Annual Meeting and Luncheon on Sunday, February 26, 2020, at the FHS Auditorium and Gym.
Coach Batoon has been in education for forty-plus years and is the epitome of an FHS Alumni. Struggling as a youngster growing up in a rough and tough Kalihi environment, he sought to be the best he could be by living and sharing:
The values of personal excellence in both body and mind;* Family cohesiveness as the cornerstone of building your Ohana;* Community involvement as a necessity to achieving your goals; and,* Role Modeling as a way to motivate coaches and athletes in promoting pride and accountability in the classroom, the playing field, and in their communities.
Sol has always had aspirations to someday return to Farrington to teach and coach at his Alma Mater. He was very recently hired as an educator at Farrington. His ultimate goal now is to coach a FHS-Governor's Basketball Team to a State Championship someday. You can be sure that he will achieve this, TOO. 
Sol truly exemplifies the true dedication and spirit to “GO FORTH TO SERVE”.
