In memory of our beloved past PIBBA Presidents, Officers and members, we especially dedicate this web site to you. We commend you for your service to our Pacific entities of Guam, Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (Saipan, Tinian, Rota), Federated States of Micronesia (Pohnpei, Chuuk, Kosrae, Yap), Republic of the Marshall Islands, Republic of Palau, Hawaii, and American Samoa. You were instrumental in bringing together our island entities to promote culture, language, and quality education. We are comforted knowing that you are in a grander place, up in heaven.

You will always remain in our hearts...
